Congress critter: "I want a 150% raise. Let's put that into law."
Yeah, that's a true problem, I'm nearly broke.1- There must be a problem/issue that is amenable to a legal solution
Easy-peasy, we'll see to that.2- The law must specifically address the identified problem
"Après moi, le déluge."3- the [sic] must be a sunset provision for all laws
Hey, I'll pay more taxes!4- There must be a set of specific objective measures of the impact of the law
We are extremely objective on the topic, believe me.5- There must be an objective action standard as a definition for success of the law
Good idea, we'll go then for 200.6- If the law does not meet the action standard it should be allowed to expire.
