WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 11, 2024) – This week, U.S. Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02), reintroduced a resolution that would require the House Clerk to read the estimated cost of any legislation after reading the title of the bill.
“Lots of people up here don't know or care about how much a bill is going to cost the American taxpayer when they introduce it or vote on it. It's time that changes,” said Rep. Burchett. "This is a straightforward bill that would open a lot of eyes to the garbage that's passing through Congress under the taxpayers' noses.”
Rep. Burchett introduced the CBO Score Reading Rule in the 116th and 117th Congress.
