Executive Office of the President

Eliminate Delivery of Hard Copies of House/Senate Bills

In my office, hard copies of all House and Senate Appropriations bills and accompanying conference reports are delivered every week or so. The bills are often 100+ pages long, and the conference reports are over 1500. All of these bills and reports are available online, so no one actually reads the print versions, and they end up sitting in the office until they are eventually thrown out to make room for the new ones. This huge waste of money and paper is completely unnecessary, especially on the part of the Government Printing Office.
