The Shortest Language Bill Just Introduced Into The U.S. Congress

By Catherine J. Frompovich

I must admit, I’ve seen just everything now, especially since I was a registered lobbyist with the U.S. Congress for five years and became familiar with bill language regarding issues concerning human health, self-determination and freedom of choice.

However, a bill was introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives bill hopper which, I think, just may make it onto the all-time-shortest-language-bill-ever list!

The bill is H.R. 899, “Termination of the Department of Education,” was introduced February 7, 2017 by Congressman Thomas  Massie (R-Ky.) and co-sponsors Congressmen Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Jody Hice (R-Ga.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.), and Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho).

H.R. 899 uses an “economy of words” consisting of one short line with 7 words and a date in Section 1. Termination of the Department of Education.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Termination of the Department of Education.

The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2018.  [1]

There you have it!  Short – sweet or not so sweet – but to the point!  How do you feel about it?  Why don’t you let your members of Congress know at https://www.congress.gov/contact-us .
