Legislation should be directed to the ‘what’ that an agency should be doing as it’s mission. Legislation should, in general, not be directed to the ‘how’ an agency should do it’s mission. If the agency cannot figure out the ‘how’, then they must be incompetent and should just be eliminated. Of course, there may be ‘rules of engagement’ issues from outside factors needed to assure adherence to norms for public engagement or enforcement in special cases where those norms are not clearly established elsewhere. Telling someone ‘how’ they should go about achieving a goal is highly prescriptive and fairly easy to do. Directing someone to accomplish something that is needed is much more difficult and requires strategic thinking and an understanding of broad other interacting factors that may effect those goals. I really think Congress has got to stop regulating the ‘how’ of things and focus on the higher level issues of ‘what’ and ‘why’. Stuff like this is ‘feel good’ legislation that should not be needed; if the agency needs new tools or safety equipment they can justify it in their annual budget request. See, no legislation needed!
