Along with Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), Americans for Tax Reform, FreedomWorks, and others, the Coalition urges the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to hold a markup on H.R. 1339, the Freedom from Government Competition Act of 2017.
The legislation “eliminates waste in the federal government by requiring a “Yellow Pages” test for government services. The “Yellow Pages” test directs agencies to identify certain functions that could be opened up to competitive bidding. H.R. 1339 does not mandate privatization; rather, it envisions a system in which private sector companies could compete alongside the federal government for the opportunity to perform these functions more efficiently and at a lower cost to taxpayers.”
