Downsize DC’s “Write the Laws Act” (WTLA)

This bill fixes a long-time constitutional violation. Only Congress has the constitutional power to impose regulations, essentially laws. But Congress has delegated much of that power to unelected bureaucrats in Executive Branch agencies. Those agencies impose thousands of rules on you, none of which Congress wrote, read, debated, or approved. This clearly violates the constitutional Separation of Powers. Downsize DC’s “Write the Laws Act” (WTLA) will fix that problem by requiring that…

  • Every rule imposed on you must be written and passed solely by Congress, with no details left to bureaucrats. No more legislation without representation!
  • You must be held blameless against any “rules” created in violation of this requirement.
  • Congress must identify previous grants of legislative power to bureaucrats so they can be repealed or approved by the Legislative Branch.

You can read the bill here.
