What To Do With Those Reports No One Reads?

Up to 300 seldom-read federal reports would be discontinued or merged with related reports under legislation gaining momentum in Congress.

The publications on the Government Report Elimination List are outdated, duplicative or unnecessary, according to Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va).

The senator said that “If these unnecessary but required reports are wasting staff time and resources, and are sitting on a shelf collecting dust, then it’s long past time for them to be eliminated or consolidated.”

In the House, the Government Oversight and Reform Committee recently approved a similar bill targeting 170 reports, as well as a bill to end the requirement to physically print the Federal Register.
