Aaron Bean Champions the Freedom from Government Competition Act

Last week, U.S. Rep. Aaron Bean, R-Fla., introduced a proposal “to increase opportunities for private industries to provide goods and services without the threat of taxpayer funded government competition” and “puts American businesses first and saves taxpayer dollars from duplicative and wasteful spending.”

Noting that the federal government was “wasting” $27 billion “on services already provided by American businesses,” Bean brought out the “Freedom from Government Competition Act.”

“Our government has grown too large and wasteful, and my bill says that if small businesses can do the job, then we do not need the federal government competing with them. This will drive down costs for all of us and will result in greater job innovation,” said Bean.

Heritage Action for America, Associated General Contractors, and Business Coalition for Fair Competition are backing the bill.

Seven House Republicans, including U.S. Reps. Kat Cammack and Greg Steube from Florida, are co-sponsoring the bill.

Bean’s proposal was sent to the U.S. House Oversight and Accountability Committee. So far, there is no companion measure over in the U.S. Senate.
