The COST Act will improve transparency about the cost of wasteful taxpayer-funded animal tests and defund rogue labs.


White Coat Waste Project has exposed that taxpayer-funded animal experimenters that waste billions of tax dollars each year on boondoggles like "mouse fight club" and monkey marriage proposals are violating a law requiring that they publicly disclose how much they spend.

A federal audit prompted by our report further confirmed that agencies are not even enforcing this common-sense transparency law.

Well, we believe taxpayers have the right to know how much of their money animal experimenters are wasting. So we worked with Congress to introduce the Cost Openness and Spending Transparency (COST) Act to strengthen this law and withhold funds from rogue labs that don't comply.
