Require all copiers to print, by default, two sided black and white without banner page

Require all Federal Agencies by management decision and/or to place into copier contracts the provision that, by default, all printing will be two-sided black and white without banner page unless the individual overtly changes printing preferences. Tremendous waste of paper, ink and color copy print charges (2.3c B/W versus 9.7c per copy cost on average) exists when employees blindly prints copies because most copiers are set one-sided color with banner page. The cost savings impact will be immediate.
