Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) introduced a new bill this week called the Let Me Google That For You Act of 2014 (seriously), according to TalkingPointsMemo.com.



The bill is meant to cut down on "the collection and distribution of government information" by prioritizing using Google over spending money to obtain information from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS).

NTIS, run by the Department of Commerce, is a repository of 3 million scientific, technical, engineering, and business information.
