Group Unveils a Comprehensive Package of Nine Bills

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Jim Cooper (TN-5) joined over seventy colleagues and the No Labels organization to announce a major reform effort. The legislative package, Make Government Work!, includes nine bills designed to make government more efficient, effective and less wasteful. Cooper said:

“Congress is broken. But it’s not beyond repair. We need real problem solving in government so that America can live up to its potential. This reform package is no cure-all, but it’s a good start.”

All nine bills have been introduced in the House and Senate. Cooper’s “No Budget, No Pay” bill is included in the package. He is a co-sponsor of the other eight bills. A full list can be found here.

No Labels is a group of Republicans, Democrats and Independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving in America. Cooper, a longtime reform advocate, is a founding member of the organization. In January, No Labels launched a Congressional Problem Solvers group of 24 that has now grown to 81 members.
