Bill Would Allow White House to Pursue Gov’t Reform; Rep. Jody Hice Quoted

Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., has introduced a bill that would give the Trump administration authority to formally present governmentwide reorganization plans to Congress.

The Reforming Government Act also calls for the legislators to expedite the review of such proposal and for the Office of Management and Budget to validate if reform efforts will likely save taxpayers money, Hice's office said Sept. 14.

Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and James Lankford, R-Okla., introduced a companion bill in June.

"In order to streamline our government and save valuable taxpayer dollars, we must enable a system of good governance focused on results rather than the same burdensome, ineffective approach," Hice said.
