Reclaim Article One and Budget Reform
Restore Congressional Rulemaking
Regulatory rulemaking and implementation has increasingly been shunted to the executive branch, bolstered by judicial deference and a lack of legislative specifics. Bringing this knowledge back to Congress with new Congressional Offices on Regulatory Rules and Legal Counsel, staffed by experts who can help draft and provide guidance on rulemaking, would be a major - overdue - reassertion of Congress's Article One powers. The first step toward bringing these new offices online would be a Government Accountability Office feasibility study.
