Congress and the Separation of Powers
This volume illustrates the problems which arise when Congress confers undue discretion upon administrators of government agencies. The author traces the constitutional history relating to legislative and executive powers and discusses the leading decisions of the Supreme Court. He reviews the path of a legislative proposal from its original draft by the Administration through its process in Congress and offers practical recommendations to improve this process and replace indefinite statutory delegations of power with precise legislative policy and guidelines. The volume points the way toward providing standards for the regulation of federal administrative agencies, a definite frame of reference for the courts, and effective overview by Congress.
