A Report of the Commission on Federal Paperwork. Final Summary Report.
Commission on Federal Paperwork, Washington, DC.
The Commission on Federal Paperwork was charged by Congress and the President with the task of making recommendations to eliminate needless paperwork while assuring that the federal government has the information necessary to meet the mandate of law and operate effectively. The 36 reports of the commission (summarized in the appendixes) examined 18 major program areas such as tax, occupational safety and health, education, health, and housing; 13 government processes, including rulemaking, information resources management, forms clearance, and the role of Congress; and the cost and other burdens of paperwork for five segments of the economy. Almost 50 percent of the 770 recommendations that were made are now being implemented by Congress and government agencies. The findings and recommendations of the committee are summarized in the report. (Author/MLF)
