Rep. DeSantis Introduces “Faithful Execution of the Law Act”
Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) today introduced the Faithful Execution of the Law Act to promote transparency and honesty in the federal government.
Currently, when the Department of Justice stops enforcing a law on the grounds that it is unconstitutional, the United States Attorney General is required to report to Congress. The Faithful Execution of the Law Act strengthens this provision by requiring all federal officials who stop enforcing a law to report to Congress the reason for the non-enforcement, regardless of whether it is being done on constitutional or policy grounds.
“President Obama has not only failed to uphold several of our nation’s laws, he has vowed to continue to do so in order to enact his unpopular agenda,” DeSantis said. “The President assured the public that his administration would be the most transparent in history, and while the President has fallen woefully short on this promise, my bill will be a step in the right direction. The American people deserve to know exactly which laws the Obama Administration is refusing to enforce and why.”
DeSantis previously introduced a House resolution disapproving of the failure of President Barack Obama to fulfill his duty under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
DeSantis: IRS “Investigation” a “sham.”
