U.S. Sen. James Lankford unveiled a report Monday morning highlighting solutions to what he says is excessive federal spending. The “Federal Fumbles” document highlighted 100 examples of what Lankford sees as waste and duplication, with policy solutions for each.
Lankford wants to permanently eliminate $6 billion in federal wind subsidies, and get rid of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan. The EPA estimates that will cost $8.4 billion by the year 2030. Lankford said during a Monday morning press conference people want their government to be efficient when it comes to taxpayer dollars.
