The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) is an obsolete agency that has long outlived its purpose.
Need proof? This agency still has no commissioners, no executive director, and no general counsel. And they haven't been able to conduct official business for the past two years.
This is why Congress must eliminate the EAC. I've introduced a bill to make this happen.
The National Association of Secretaries of State -- the direct beneficiaries of the EAC's dwindling services -- adopted resolutions calling for the dissolution of the EAC in 2005 and 2010.
The existence of the EAC is not necessary to conduct federal elections and is an unnecessary expenditure of taxpayer funds.
Its time is up -- let's save taxpayer dollars and eliminate the EAC.
