Whereas: This country and our Constitution, the document you and your peers are sworn to defend and uphold, were founded upon self determination and government forever accountable to the people. Whereas: The legislative branch of the government is the only branch authorized by the Constitution to pass laws in order to execute the eighteen enumerated powers listed in article I Section 8 of the U S Constitution and to appropriate funds. Whereas: The executive branch has usurped many of the authorities...In Order to Restore Balance to our Republic, We the People do Humbly Beseech You: To draft or have drafted legislation modeled to reflect the following outline...All federal agencies and departments are to be audited...All regulations, laws, bylaws, fines, impositions, etc. will be examined by the proper congressional committee and the full congress.

I know, it is a pipe dream that Brown would support anything like this. We must start pushing our elected representatives to return our Republic back to that as outlined in the Constitution, I believe this bill is a start in that direction.
Where did you find this was a bill proposed by Brown? This seems to be just a Google doc and by the title and properties, it looks like it is a letter to Brown, not anything drafted by him.
If you click on the vanity link, the full text is available!!!
..never mind, I misread the title, “to” instead of “by”
Am proposing legislation that would order the legislative branch actually do their jobs, Yes
First of all Scott Brown is the last guy in the world to reform anything. Second the new rules of the House say that with every new piece of legislation submitted there has to be an accompanying statement of its constitutionality.
My Rep Rob Woodall confirmed last Wed night that they are indeed abiding by this new rule.
I know Brown is not the guy to do this. This will be sent to someone more inclined after we go to the press locally and expose him for who he is if he refuses to act on this.
