Retirado do Longman Dictionary of English Idioms:

the buck stops here:
used to indicate that the speaker is prepared to take responsibility for anything he is given to do.
Buck is shortened from buckhorn knife. This object was formerly used in some card games to show that the person putting it on the table had a special responsibility when it was his turn to deal the cards. The saying was popularized by president Harry S. Truman (1945-53).

Este problema não vai ser mais passado para ninguém resolver


Explanation:
O sentido é aquele de "eu tomo conta disso", "deixa que eu resolvo". Mas eu só estou acrescentando, para ser verificado no seu contexto, se o sentido não é o de acabar com a burocracia, não passar o problema para frente. Porque esse é o sentido que o presidente Truman tornou popular. Ótima dúvida
