Darrell Issa (R-Calf.), chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has said a newly passed legislation intends to cut the number of redundant government reports, Federal Times reported Thursday.

Michael Hardy writes the Government Reports Elimination Act obtained final approval from the House on Nov. 12 after the Senate passed it Sept. 16.

The bill is intended to eliminate duplicate and unnecessary agency reports, according to the report.

“The Government Reports Elimination Act reduces waste and duplication in the federal government by eliminating or streamlining 53 unnecessary government reports,” Issa told reporters.

Issa and Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) introduced the bill in the House and Sens. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) were co-sponsors of the legislation.
