Finally, a Senate Hearing on ‘Czars’

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 at 5:29 pm

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), one of two Democrats who’s expressed worry about the president’s use of advisers who haven’t been approved by the Senate, has scheduled Constitution subcommittee hearings on the matter.

The Senate Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on the Constitution has scheduled a hearing on “Examining the History and Legality of Executive Branch ‘Czars’” for Tuesday, October 6, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. in Room 226 of the Senate Dirksen Office Building.

No word yet on which experts will appear, but you’d be hard pressed to find a D.C. conservative or libertarian who’d turn it down.
