Update/Executive Orders - Phase II

 
May 16, 2000


Dear friend of liberty,

Your efforts are making a difference!

H.R. 2655 - The Separation of Powers Restoration Act now has 40
co-sponsors.  Rush Limbaugh has been discussing executive orders
on his national program, urging Governor Bush to make them a
campaign issue, and asking that the subject be a part of the
presidential debates.  Roger Fredinburgh talked about executive
orders during his national program in March.  Several regional
radio talk show hosts in different parts of the country have
talked about executive orders during the last several months.
Articles, editorials and letters to the editors have been
published in numerous newspapers from coast to coast.  The issue
is moving in our direction.

We must continue to push the issue in the U.S. House of
Representatives.  In addition to continuing our work in the U.S.
House, we can now start moving the issue in the U.S. Senate -
thanks to Senator Mike Crapo of Idaho!  Action by the U.S.
Senate is an equal part of our legislative process.  Senator
Crapo introduced S. 1795 - The Executive Orders Limitation
Act which is very similar to H.R. 2655 - The Separation of
Powers Restoration Act.

There are people, organizations and institutions that want the
problem and, more specifically, the legislative solution to
presidential executive order abuse to simply go away; to become
nothing more than an item for academic squabble.  The issue,
however, won't go away - because we're not going to let it.

Please urge your two U.S. senators to co-sponsor S. 1795 - The
Executive Orders Limitation Act.  

Thank you for your help!  Please pass this information on to
others.
