The Real Cost of Gov't (in 3 Measures)


Want to know just how much pending legislation is gonna cost you–whether "you" is an individual, a couple, or a family?

Then check out Washington Watch, a site run by occasional Reason contributor Jim Harper. The site breaks down how much pending legislation and regulation will cost. So, for instance, go here to get the skinny on the The Unaccompanied Alien Child Act of 2005 (which will cost the average family six cents). And go here for a fuller explanation of how the site derives its estimates.

Washington Watch is well worth killing a few hours at (no idea of how much the site will cost the average employer in terms of lost work).
