One Subject Per Bill
With the recent 600/2000 incompetence, along with the multiple line items like the streaming/copyright laws, I was wondering what this sub thought about “1 subject per bill” being the law of the land.
Do any other countries have this sort of law in their constitution? Do they ignore it and work around it, or has it been positive for them?
Is there any text in the US Constitution that could be interpreted to mean that a bill should only have one subject and no “extras”? Is there any reading from the time of the constitution’s drafting that discusses line item extras, or restricting the scope of bills? Also, what did the founding fathers say about how the government should be budgeted? I’m assuming that they’d be horrified at 5,000 page “omnibus” bills that no one had time to read.
