Restoring Representative Government

Feb 11, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers today introduced a resolution that affirms Congress’s intent to restore authority and power to the American people

“As House Republicans continue to build a bold, forward-looking agenda, we must ensure that the policies we support and promote are empowering the American people. Congress by its design is most direct voice of the people, responsible for protecting their interests and executing their will. For several decades, executive power that bypasses the legislative process has violated the separation of powers, but more importantly, has diminished the power of the American people. The American people are frustrated, and the best way to rebuild trust in Congress is to restore the power to the people through their elected representatives. This resolution is only the start. We are committed to reforming government to be more responsive and accountable to everyday Americans.”
