Sunset Necessity

by Amity Shlaes
September 3, 2009

This week’s Bloomberg column is on the Sunset movement, which seems to me a good movement for both political parties at this point. John Chachas’s plan to run against Harry Reid is tactically interesting because Nevada has a relatively small population. Rep. Kevin Brady and I connected too late in the day for his quote to make it into the column, but it’s important. “I continue to push for a federal sunset law that would hold all agencies and programs accountable to a sunset date.” In other words, Brady too wants less discretion and more structure in the political process.
