WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Rand Paul today reintroduced S.1575, Write the Laws Act, S.1572, One Subject at a Time Act, and S.1571, Read the Bills Act. These pieces of legislation, originally introduced in the 112th Congress, will restore the constitutional principle of separation of powers, end the practice of including more than one subject in a single bill, and preserve the constitutional authority of Congress.
“Too often in Congress, legislation is pushed through without hearings, amendments, or debate. I firmly believe the American people have a right to be part of the legislative process. My bills will allow citizens sufficient time to read and give input to members of Congress as they consider legislation impacting the lives of all Americans. I will continue to stand by my pledge to increase transparency and accessibility in the U.S. Senate,” Sen. Paul said.
