CBO Puts Price Tag on ‘Taxpayers Right-To-Know Act’

Capitol_BuildingA bill that would require federal agencies to detail every program and contract and publish that information online would cost $100 million to implement over the next four years, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates.

The Taxpayers Right-To-Know Act would also codify or slightly modify current requirements under the Government Performance and Results Act, which requires agencies to describe every program they administer, CBO said in an analysis dated Aug. 22.

CBO produced the report in response to an inquiry from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Agencies would likely use a pay-as-you-go method as the bill could affect direct spending by agencies not funded through annual appropriations, CBO says.
