house Bill H.R. 3089

Do Federal Agencies Need to Close Accounts That Have Expired Grant Funding?

Argument in favor

More needs to be done to stop the waste of taxpayer dollars on maintaining expired and empty federal grant accounts.

Why isn't this being done as a matter of routine? You have to pass a piece of legislation to get this done? Ridiculous.

If the account has expired, it should either not exist or be renewed, otherwise it is a waist of money. The cost of the bill is less than the annual cost of these accounts, and once closed will continue to save money even once this bill's purpose is completed. That's $400,000 annually saved during the process of closure and then $2 million annually saved after completion.

The fact that we need legislation for this common sense action is Just another pathetic example of our inept Government.

Argument opposed

This is additional work for the agencies maintaining the grant accounts, and they’re already doing their best to close the expired accounts.

It does not seem to me that the benefit of recovering funds sooner than in the current process is worth the added cost of recovery.

Micromanage or employ competent people who understand that this should already be included as a job responsibility?
