House Republicans Pushing Bill To Shift Regulation Authority To Congress
The purpose of having regulatory authority within the administration is that the legislature does not have the time or expertise to do it. The legislature writes broad policy into law, and the administration works out and implements the details.
Putting the administration on a short leash rejects the separation of powers, cripples the regulatory function, inflates hyper-partisanship, and increases the cost while decreasing the effectiveness of government. This, of course, is what the GOP wants. By crippling the government’s ability to protect the lives and rights of living people, they give a free hand to the predators and polluter who support them. The anarchy they seek favors the powerful and the dangerous.
This is deeply damaging to the country.
