Charles Djou on Government Reform

 

 


Increase penalties & crack down on corrupt agencies

The reasons why our country is moving in the wrong direction are the same reasons why Charles is running for Congress. He has never voted to raise taxes and wants to make Washington more accountable on spending because he knows that every dollar that the government spends comes from hardworking American families. Independent minded, Djou understands how important the public trust is, and has been a leader on major ethics reforms by voting to increase penalties and crack down on corrupt city agencies.

Sunset Act: review every federal agency every 12 years.

Djou signed H.R. 393

    Establishes the Federal Agency Sunset Commission to:
  1. submit to Congress a schedule for review by the Commission, at least once every 12 years, of the abolishment or reorganization of each agency;
  2. review and evaluate the efficiency and public need for each agency using specified criteria;
  3. recommend whether each agency should be abolished or reorganized; and
  4. report to Congress on all legislation introduced that would establish a new agency or a new program to be carried out by an existing agency.
  5. Terminates the Commission on December 31, 2033.
Requires the abolishment of any agency within one year of the Commission's review, unless the agency is reauthorized by Congress. Authorizes the deadline for abolishing an agency to be extended for an additional two years by legislation enacted by a super majority of the House of Representatives and the Senate.
