Dear Representative,

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 H. Con. Res. 89 and H. Con.

(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.

CAGW Releases March 2016 WasteWatcher

(Washington, D.C.) – Today Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) released its March 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 March edition of WasteWatcher are listed in part as follows:

Water Wars: The Man-Made Drought

In the summer of 2002, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and several other local environmental activist groups in California announced their radical agenda to combat the “drought” in California by removing 1.3 million acres of farmland from production in the San Joaquin Valley. The effort to remove such a vast amount of farmland from production was due to an effort to save a 3-inch long minnow called the Delta Smelt.  The burden that water policies in California have had on taxpayers is often overlooked and widely misunderstood.  It is worth understanding what these policies mean and how they affect not only California, but the rest of the country.

The Moral Hazard of Subpriming Solar

In January 2016, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced the launch of the $30 million Mass Solar Loan Program (MSLP).  MSLP will provide residential solar customers income-based loan support and interest rate buy downs.  The program will also include a subprime loan loss reverse scheme to reduce the risk to lenders, opening the door for financial chaos to ensue.
