Every year, the federal government wastes billions of dollars on programs that pollute our air, contribute to global warming, contaminate our water and scar our public lands. These programs encourage the damming of our free-flowing rivers, the logging of our nation’s remaining forests, and the production of toxic waste, all at the expense of federal taxpayers.
Green Scissors 2001 outlines 74 programs that, if cut, would save taxpayers more than $55 billion and protect our environment. The Green Scissors report is the product of the Green Scissors Campaign, a diverse coalition of environmental, taxpayer, budget watchdog and other groups that have come together to cut environmentally harmful and wasteful spending.
