Between 1932 and 1981, Congress periodically delegated authority to the President that allowed him to develop plans for reorganization of portions of the federal government and to present those plans to Congress for consideration under special expedited parliamentary procedures. This book summarizes the repeated renewal and evolution of presidential reorganization authority, as well as subsequent unsuccessful efforts, history, proposals and congressional options.
