Description
 
Congressional advisory commissions are formal groups established to provide independent advice; make recommendations for changes in public policy; study or investigate a particular problem, issue, or event; or perform a duty. While no legal definition exists for what constitutes a ńˇýcongressional commission,ńˇŁ in this report a congressional commission is defined as a multi-member independent entity that (1) is established by Congress, (2) exists temporarily, (3) serves in an advisory capacity, (4) is appointed in part or whole by Members of Congress, and (5) reports to Congress. These five characteristics differentiate a congressional commission from a presidential commission, an executive branch commission, or other bodies with ńˇýcommissionńˇŁ in their names. Over 90 congressional commissions have been established since 1989. Contents of this report: Introduction; Defining ńˇýCongressional CommissionńˇŁ; Cataloging Congressional Commissions; Potential Value of Congressional Commissions; Criticism of Commissions; Legislative Options for Commission Structure; Key Considerations for Congress; Congressional Commissions, 101st to 112th Congress. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
