                               RESOLUTION


 
 Expressing the disapproval of the House of Representatives regarding 
Presidential circumvention of the legislative authority of the Congress 
                         to set public policy.

Whereas article I, section 1 of the Constitution specifies that ``All 
        legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the 
        United States'';
Whereas a ``republic'' is defined as ``a government in which supreme power 
        resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by 
        elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing 
        according to law'';
Whereas individual Americans consistently express their opinions to Members of 
        Congress;
Whereas Members of Congress are duly elected and serve to uphold the 
        Constitution and represent the views of their constituents; and
Whereas the administration has encouraged litigation against law-abiding private 
        companies in order to force the adoption of certain policy initiatives: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that 
the President and appointed members and staff of the executive branch 
should not use litigation in a coercive manner in order to circumvent 
the legislative function of the Congress.
                                 <all>
