Past behavior and statements from Republicans in Congress indicate that they desire to undermine federal agencies every chance they get. This bill is meant to appear benign and maybe somewhat reassuring to those of us who are concerned about the unprecedented potential for ethics violations under the incoming administration; however, it's likely that Republicans are taking the first steps to dismantle regulations and render these agencies powerless. Look at Trump's Cabinet picks; ironically, many of them detest the agency for which they were chosen. Sadly, we've learned many hard lessons about the damage deregulation can do to average Americans. Once again, Congress is placing wealthy donors above the majority of their constituents.
