- Unfunded mandates are legislative or regulatory requirements that impose implementation and compliance costs on state, local, or tribal governments, or the private sector.
- To address the rapid expansion of unfunded mandates, Congress enacted the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) of 1995.
- However, federal agencies have found ways around UMRA and continue to impose burdensome requirements on state and local governments.
