ILR’s Support for ‘Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act’ Highlighted

Noting ILR’s support for the legislation, Arizona Business Daily highlights Rep. Trent Franks’ (R-AZ) co-sponsorship of the Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act of 2016 (HR 5063).

“This bill is very simply about the Separation of Powers and who has the constitutional authority to determine how certain funds are spent. Congress, and not the DOJ, is responsible and H.R. 5063 addresses this institutional issue in a direct and bipartisan way,” Franks told Arizona Business Daily.

“Advancing this legislation is an important step toward ensuring that federal enforcement officials make decisions in the public interest, not for their own personal or political interest,” said ILR President Lisa A. Rickard.
