Three bills for a transparent Congress

Please tell Congress to support DownsizeDC.org's three core Agenda bills through the Legislative Quality Control campaign.

You may borrow from or edit this letter…

I demand greater legislative tranpsarency. Re-introduce these bills from the last Congress…

1. The Read the Bills Act (http://1.usa.gov/1xxyybr) requires YOU to read the bills you support, and gives the public seven days to read and critique them before Congress votes. Unlike rushed-through bills like Obamacare, you couldn’t “pass the bill so that you can find out what's in it.”

2. The One Subject at a Time Act (http://1.usa.gov/1Go51Gd) prevents Congress from combining unrelated bills into one. No more pork-filled Omnibus bills!   

3. The Write the Laws Act (http://1.usa.gov/1xefVPn) prevents you from delegating regulatory (legislative) authority to agency bureaucrats. It would have prevented the FCC from imposing its secret “Net Neutrality” proposal without your consent.    

If you dislike rushed-through bills, multi-subject “omnibus” bills, and bureaucratic tyranny as much as I do, these bills are the solution. Introduce them!
