The fine print of cutting government printing costs

Washington Post – “With all of Washington looking for new ways to trim the federal fat, there’s yet another proposal to cut back on the amount of money spent on paper and printing.”

“Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) think they can save taxpayers about $8 million by stopping the Government Printing Office from printing thousands of rarely-read copies of the Congressional Record. The bill would require the GPO to print just enough copies to provide printed archives of the record — about 111 copies, according to their estimates — plus any additional copies explicitly requested by lawmakers and the vice president’s office. “
