Last week the House of Representatives passed the Presidential Library
Donation Reform Act, which sponsor Rep. John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-TN-2) has
introduced in almost every Congress since 1999. Those few good-government
groups that were paying attention hailed passage of the bill.

The legislation would require that presidential library support
organizations – the private foundations that presidents set up to raise
money for and build their libraries – disclose all donations of more than
$200. The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the federal
agency that administers the libraries, would be charged with publishing
those donations in a timely manner.

"The problems of our economy have occurred not as an outgrowth of
laissez-faire, unbridled competition.
They have occurred under the guidance of federal agencies, and under the
umbrella of federal regulations."
Senator Ted Kennedy, in defending trucking deregulation in 1978.
