Brief Executive Summary
The Special Investigations Division of the House Committee on Government Reform released a follow-up report investigating a significant increase in government paperwork during the Bush Administration, despite President Bush's promises to reduce such burdens. The total time spent on paperwork reached a record 8.4 billion hours in fiscal year 2005 and is expected to grow. The report states that President Bush's promises to reduce paperwork have not materialized, and the average adult in the U.S. is expected to spend 39 hours on government paperwork in a year.
