Has Congress has over-delegated to agencies and failed to provide meaningful oversight? Should Congress coordinate its oversight responsibility with its appropriations authority? Are the courts, in the wake of the Chevron case, and most recently in City of Arlington, deferring too much to agencies? Are the President and White House able to provide oversight, and does the answer change for cabinet-level departments versus independent agencies?
