U.S. Senate
Washington, D.C 20510

Dear Senator,

You will soon consider S. 2848, the Water Resources Development Act of 2016.  On behalf of the more than one million members and supporters of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), I urge you to support the following amendments:

Waste Proliferates Inside the EPA in 2016

No department or agency in the federal government is immune from the bureaucratic toxin of waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement.  Ironically, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is responsible for cleaning up all kinds of sewage, sludge, and foul matter, has consistently been one of the most wasteful agencies.  EPA officials have so consistently mismanaged and squandered the taxpayers’ money in 2016 that this year alone should serve as a teachable moment for other federal agencies.

CAGW Releases April 2016 WasteWatcher

For Immediate Release Contact: Curtis Kalin 202-467-5318
April 19, 2016  

(Washington, D.C.) – Today Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) released its April WasteWatcher, a monthly dispatch to members of the news media, highlighting some of the most prominent fiscal issues affecting American taxpayers.  The stories from its April edition of WasteWatcher are listed in part as follows:

Waste Land

In the land of the free, the federal government still controls more than 50 percent of all land west of Kansas.  The ongoing control of such a large part of the western states by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) has been disastrous to the environment and the economy.  With record-setting wildfires burning millions of acres, emitting pollutants into the air, and destroying habitats and watersheds, the only solution is to transfer the public lands to willing states, which will provide for more accountable and efficient land management.
