US House H.R. 861 – I like bills this short

by Skip

In my mind, bills that run more than 10 pages (max) are just the Devil’s Workshop.  Too much can be “hidden” in too much verbiage or cross-links to other legislature.  This is clear, concise, and pretty much plain-speaking:

H. R. 861

To terminate the Environmental Protection Agency.
