ORG04: The President Should Request Authority to Reorganize Agencies


Legislation should be enacted to grant the President reorganization authority. (3)

Congress should reinstate the President's authority to restructure agencies in the executive branch. Congress has given the President statutory reorganization authority several times (for limited periods) since the 1930's. The last authority was granted through the Reorganization Act Amendments of 1984, which expired at the end of 1984. In the absence of such authority, the President can only reorganize through the standard, time-consuming legislative process.
