    COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR REORGANIZING THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

    Section 1. Purpose. This order is intended to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the executive branch by directing the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (Director) to propose a plan to reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies (as defined in section 551(1) of title 5, United States Code), components of agencies, and agency programs.

    Sec. 2. Proposed Plan to Improve the Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Accountability of Federal Agencies, Including, as Appropriate, to Eliminate or Reorganize Unnecessary or Redundant Federal Agencies. (a) Within 180 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit to the Director a proposed plan to reorganize the agency, if appropriate, in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of that agency.

    (b) The Director shall publish a notice in the Federal Register inviting the public to suggest improvements in the organization and functioning of the executive branch and shall consider the suggestions when formulating the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section.

    (c) Within 180 days after the closing date for the submission of suggestions pursuant to subsection (b) of this section, the Director shall submit to the President a proposed plan to reorganize the executive branch in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of agencies. The proposed plan shall include, as appropriate, recommendations to eliminate unnecessary agencies, components of agencies, and agency programs, and to merge functions. The proposed plan shall include recommendations for any legislation or administrative measures necessary to achieve the proposed reorganization.

    (d) In developing the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section, the Director shall consider, in addition to any other relevant factors:

    (i) whether some or all of the functions of an agency, a component, or a program are appropriate for the Federal Government or would be better left to State or local governments or to the private sector through free enterprise;

    (ii) whether some or all of the functions of an agency, a component, or a program are redundant, including with those of another agency, component, or program;

    (iii) whether certain administrative capabilities necessary for operating an agency, a component, or a program are redundant with those of another agency, component, or program;

    (iv) whether the costs of continuing to operate an agency, a component, or a program are justified by the public benefits it provides; and

    (v) the costs of shutting down or merging agencies, components, or programs, including the costs of addressing the equities of affected agency staff.

    (e) In developing the proposed plan described in subsection (c) of this section, the Director shall consult with the head of each agency and, consistent with applicable law, with persons or entities outside the Federal Government with relevant expertise in organizational structure and management.

    Sec. 3. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

    (i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

    (ii) the functions of the Director relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

    (b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

    (c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

    Draining the swamp! Make room on Mount Rushmore, the Trump train will be departing there. Democrats are going to hate this for sure, looks like a great move for America and Americans.

    For a guy who likes to take credit for "creating jobs", how is Trump going to reconcile throwing thousands of Govt. workers on the street?

    This whole Order seems like BS that will end up going nowhere.

    The heads of all Federal Agencies should be required to justify in writing not only the existence of their Agency, but what they have actually done to improve the lives of Americans with specifics.

    Government cube dwellers are not jobs. Actually, they are dead weight for the most part since they don't produce a single good or service that anyone would pay them willingly for.

    See? Glad that you admitted some on your side think he's a joke or should I say an imposter pretending to be a president.

    I have added you to my "ignore" list.

    The ATF, FBI, CIA, NSA, and NASA should be on the list for elimination since they fit the description of agencies described in the EO. Now if we could only get rid of Congress and the courts...

    I'm hearing the EPA and Education are taking big cuts.

    But if anyone is surprised by what the POTUS is doing, just go back and listen to his campaign speeches. It's no secret.

    Here's a link to all of the federal agencies from A to Z (no agencies are listed under Q, X, Y, or Z).

    So, have some fun and list the ones you would eliminate. https://www.usa.gov/federal-agencies/c

    How about an easy one, the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition?

    "Meet The Council

    The President’s Council is composed of up to 25 members appointed by the President to promote physical activity, good nutrition, and sports participation."

    He ordered a study. He hasn't actually implemented anything.

    So you assume. Anybody who loses their job will have hiring priority for government jobs and end up right back in the swamp, many with pay raises.

    How do you make it through a day on the internet if you're so easily offended by an avatar?
