End Federal Agencies' Slush Funds

Last week, Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.) introduced H.R. 5499, the Agency Accountability Act. Congress provides funds to federal agencies to carry out specified activities through the appropriations process. Too often, these agencies engage in activities that Congress has not authorized and pays for them via fines and fees they collect. This practice is an end run around Congress and the will of the people. Rep. Palmer’s bill would curb this practice, help restore the oversight function of Congress, and send the money garnered by federal agencies through fees to the Treasury instead of allowing those funds to be used indiscriminately.
