Trump takes immediate step to try to curb new inspector general’s autonomy, as battle over coronavirus oversight begins. by Jeff Stein, The Washington Post, Updated: March 28, 2020- 12:57 PM
“President Donald Trump on Friday took a step to immediately try to curb oversight provisions in Congress’ $2 trillion coronavirus spending package, seeking to assert presidential authority over a new inspector general’s office.”
“Today, I have signed into law H.R. 748, the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” or the “CARES” Act (the “Act”). The Act makes emergency supplemental appropriations and other changes to law to help the Nation respond to the coronavirus outbreak. I note, however, that the Act includes several provisions that raise constitutional concerns.”
