House Introduces Bill to Rescind Federal Funding from Agencies Where Improper Payment Rate Increases from Previous Year

On December 3, 2013, Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) introduced the “Eliminate Preventable Waste Act” (H.R. 3644). If passed, this bill would require the commissioner of the Social Security Administration and the secretaries of agriculture, labor, health and human services, treasury, and veterans affairs to review certain programs under their purview for failures to reduce the improper pay rate from the previous fiscal year, and to report that information to the Office of Management and Budget. The bill would require agencies failing to report a decrease in the improper pay rate to lose a percentage of their funding equal to the highest improper pay rate for the particular program listed in the report. The bill was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the Committee on the Budget, and the Committee on Appropriations.
