Our legal research and "Free Talk Live"
By Jim Babka
Today's Downsizer-Dispatch... In this message:
  • A summary of our work on enhancing the "Read the Bills Act."
  • Please vote for "Free Talk Live" in the latest podcast competition.
On December 14 we requested your help to enhance the Read the Bills Act (RTBA). You responded. Thank you. We were uneasy that Congress would make their bills easier to read by delegating all of the "rule making" details to the bureaucracy. We wanted to see if we could, or should, close this potential RTBA loophole. This blog post explains what we learned and what we've decided. Please read it. Here's the nutshell... we're going to produce a separate bill; the "No Regulation Without Representation Act." Again, go to the blog for the details, and then please leave a comment telling us what you think. We think the "delegation problem" is very important and must be addressed. We looked around and I can say with confidence that we've got the best solution to this problem. And we want every DC Downsizer to understand it. If you do, you'll know something very few Americans know. We also think the decision to create a second bill is very important. This won't be the last time we do this. And we want you to know why. Frankly, we also want to get people in the habit of reading our blog, because we can say a lot more there than we can in the Downsizer-Dispatch. More on RTBA and the new "No REGULATION Without Representation Act" coming soon. Stay tuned. And don't forget to vote for "Free Talk Live" (see below), so more people will hear the Downsize DC radio spots they run.
