H. CON. RES. 102
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
June 25, 1997
Received; referred to the Committee on Governmental Affairs
Expressing the sense of the Congress that the cost of government
spending and regulatory programs should be reduced so that American
families will be able to keep more of what they earn.
Whereas the total cost of government spending and regulations (total cost of
government) consumes 36.2 percent of the Nation's net national product;
Whereas the total cost of government now exceeds $3,520,000,000,000 annually;
Whereas Federal regulatory costs now exceed $785,000,000,000 annually;
Whereas the cost of government in general and excessive regulations in
particular place a tremendous drain on the economy by reducing worker
productivity, increasing prices to consumers, and limiting the economic
choices and individual freedoms of our citizenry;
Whereas, if the average American worker were to spend all of his or her gross
earnings on nothing else besides meeting his or her share of the total
cost of government for the current year, that total cost would not be
met until July 3, 1997;
Whereas July 3, 1997, should therefore be considered Cost of Government Day
Whereas it is not right that the American family has to give up more than 50
percent of what it earns to the government: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That it is the sense of the Congress that, as part of balancing the
budget and reevaluating the role of government, Federal, State, and
local elected officials should carefully consider the costs of
government spending and regulatory programs in the year to come so that
American families will be able to keep more of what they earn.
Passed the House of Representatives June 25, 1997.
