                     Committee Statement and Views


                          PURPOSE AND SUMMARY

    The purpose of H.R. 4194, the Government Reports 
Elimination Act of 2014, is to prevent taxpayer dollars from 
being wasted on the production of unnecessary reports. The bill 
voted out of committee eliminates more than 100 federal agency 
reports that are duplicative or no longer necessary. H.R. 4194 
also eliminates or modifies nine Government Accountability 
Office (GAO) mandates.

                  BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION

    Congress regularly enacts legislation placing reporting 
requirements on the Executive Branch. These agency reports can 
be useful resources and tools for the Congress as well as the 
general public. But changing technology, program requirements, 
and economic, domestic and foreign policy eventually render 
many reports that agencies supply to Congress unnecessary. The 
preparation of these reports can be expensive, primarily in 
terms of the work hours involved to produce them, but also in 
materials used.
    The GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-352) 
included a direction to each agency to assist the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) in publishing an annual list of 
unnecessary agency reports. In January 2013, OMB published the 
first such list.
    It then became the job of Congress to vet this list, and 
determine which reports that the Administration views as 
unnecessary are also unnecessary in the eyes of the Legislative 
Branch. Chairman Issa sent a letter to the chairman of each 
House Committee soliciting input on OMB's list of proposed 
eliminations. The Committee relied on the feedback received 
from the various committees of the House to winnow down the 
original list of eliminations proposed by OMB.
    Additionally, in 2013, the General Accountability Office 
identified nine statutory reporting mandates it must currently 
comply with that are burdensome and unnecessary. H.R. 4194 
eliminates five such mandates that are no longer needed, and 
revises the remaining four to a more appropriate scope.

                          Legislative History

    The most recent government-wide reports elimination 
legislation signed into law was the Federal Reports Elimination 
Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-362), which eliminated or modified 
approximately 200 reports. Since then, the two chambers have 
attempted to address this issue, and Congress has eliminated 
unnecessary reporting requirements on some individual agencies 
in a piecemeal fashion. But no comprehensive, government-wide 
reports elimination legislation has been adopted since 1998.
    On January 4, 2011, H.R. 2142, the GPRA Modernization Act 
of 2010, was enacted (Public Law 111-352). Section 1125 of the 
GPRA Modernization Act directs each agency to annually compile 
a list of all outdated, duplicative or unnecessary reports to 
Congress and submit that list to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for publication. In January 2013, OMB made public 
a list of reports identified by each agency as such.
    On January 8, 2014, the House passed H.R. 3628, the 
Transportation Reports Elimination Act of 2014. H.R. 3628 
eliminates, streamlines, and modifies several reports prepared 
by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). At the request of the 
Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Title XVII of H.R. 
4194 includes the language found in Section 2(a) and (b)(1) of 
H.R. 3628, eliminating 7 DOT and EPA reports identified by the 
committee.
    On March 11, 2014, Chairman Darrell Issa, along with 
Representatives Gerald Connolly (D-VA) and Rob Woodall (R-GA), 
introduced H.R. 4194, the Government Reports Elimination Act of 
2014. On March 12, 2014, H.R. 4194 was considered during a full 
committee mark up. It was reported favorably by voice vote, 
without amendment.

description of the application of this bill to the legislative 
branch where the bill relates to the terms and conditions of 
employment or access to public services and accommodations. 
This bill eliminates federal agency reports to Congress and

  Statement of Oversight Findings and Recommendations of the Committee

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(1) of rule XIII and clause 
(2)(b)(1) of rule X of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives, the Committee's oversight findings and 
recommendations are reflected in the descriptive portions of 
this report.

         Statement of General Performance Goals and Objectives

    In accordance with clause 3(c)(4) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee's performance 
goals and objectives are reflected in the descriptive portions 
of this report.

                    Duplication of Federal Programs

    No provision of H.R. 4194 establishes or reauthorizes a 
program of the Federal Government known to be duplicative of 
another Federal program, a program that was included in any 
report from the Government Accountability Office to Congress 
pursuant to section 21 of Public Law 111-139, or a program 
related to a program identified in the most recent Catalog of 
Federal Domestic Assistance.

                  Disclosure of Directed Rule Makings

    The Committee estimates that enacting H.R. 4194 does not 
direct the completion of any specific rule makings within the 
meaning of 5 U.S.C. 551.

                     Federal Advisory Committee Act

    The Committee finds that the legislation does not establish 
or authorize the establishment of an advisory committee within 
the definition of 5 U.S.C. App., Section 5(b).

                       Unfunded Mandate Statement

    Section 423 of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment 
Control Act (as amended by Section 101(a)(2) of the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act, P.L. 104-4) requires a statement as to 
whether the provisions of the reported include unfunded 
mandates. In compliance with this requirement the Committee has 
received a letter from the Congressional Budget Office included 
herein.

                         Earmark Identification

    H.R. 4194 does not include any congressional earmarks, 
limited tax benefits, or limited tariff benefits as defined in 
clause 9 of rule XXI.

                           Committee Estimate

    Clause 3(d)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives requires an estimate and a comparison by the 
Committee of the costs that would be incurred in carrying out 
H.R. 4194. However, clause 3(d)(3)(B) of that rule provides 
that this requirement does not apply when the Committee has

     Budget Authority and Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate

    With respect to the requirements of clause 3(c)(2) of rule 
XIII of the Rules of the House of Representatives and section 
308(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 and with respect 
to requirements of clause (3)(c)(3) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives and section 402 of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974, the Committee has received 
the following cost estimate for H.R. 4194 from the Director of 
Congressional Budget Office:

                                                    April 24, 2014.
Hon. Darrell Issa,
Chairman, Committee on Oversight and Government Reform,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 4194, the 
Government Reports Elimination Act of 2014.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Matthew 
Pickford.
            Sincerely,
                                              Douglas W. Elmendorf.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 4194--Government Reports Elimination Act of 2014

    H.R. 4194 would eliminate requirements for 18 federal 
entities to prepare specific reports for the Congress. Based on 
information from the Office of Management and Budget and some 
affected agencies, CBO estimates that implementing the bill 
would reduce costs that are subject to appropriation by about 
$1 million over the next five years. Enacting H.R. 4194 would 
not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-
go procedures do not apply.
    H.R. 4194 would eliminate the requirement to prepare 85 
reports that are produced by numerous federal agencies, 
including: the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, 
Education, Energy, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban 
Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, 
and Veterans Affairs, and the Corporation for National and 
Community Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, the 
Executive Office of the President, the Government 
Accountability Office, and the Office of the Director of 
National Intelligence. By reducing the number of reports that 
must be prepared and printed, implementing H.R. 4194 would 
reduce the administrative costs of those agencies.
    The bill contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and 
would impose no costs on state, local or tribal governments.
    The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Matthew 
Pickford. The estimate was approved by Theresa Gullo, Deputy 
Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.

        is consistent across the Department of Defense.
          [(4) Requirement to address unjustified escalation.--
        The head of a Defense Agency or the Secretary of a 
        military department shall take appropriate action to

should be adjusted in order that the balance of the Customs 
User Fee Account approximates a zero balance. Before making 
recommendations regarding any such adjustments, the Secretary 
of the Treasury shall provide adequate opportunity for public 
comment. The recommendations shall, as precisely as possible, 
propose fees which reflect the actual costs to the United 
States Government for the commercial services provided by the 
United States Customs Service.]
