Separation of Powers Restoration Act Is An Important Step Toward Restoring the Constitution

Following the introduction of the Separation of Powers Restoration Act by a bicameral coalition of members – including Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) – FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“The constitutional separation of powers has been eviscerated by an ever-expanding web of unaccountable federal regulatory agencies that has usurped power from the people and their elected representatives in Congress and the states. This endangers our personal freedoms and costs the American economy about $2 trillion a year.”

“The Separation of Powers Restoration Act is an important step towards restoring the balance of power by forcing the unelected bureaucrats in Washington to abide by the laws enacted by Congress rather than pursuing their own ideological agendas through fanciful interpretations of federal statutes. This bill is an essential part of the Article I Project, which seeks to restore the separation of powers by reasserting Congress’s constitutional authority.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
