The U.S. Congress has long abused the intent of the legislative process as designed. Rider clauses are used to slip unrelated items into existing bills. These Rider Clauses are frequently used to fund "Pork" projects. These clauses are used to strip the teeth from legislation and allow Congress to say they voted to change something without actually requiring that anything be changed, or to add items, that they know would not pass otherwise, to popular proposed legislation.

It is the right of every citizen to be  able to read and easily understand legislation that is proposed to the Congress.

The One Subject at a Time Act has been proposed to resolve this issue and bring transparency and honesty back to the legislative process.

H.R.4335 and S.1572 have been proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, respectively.
