Congressional Oversight: Vice President Richard B. Cheney's Executive Branch Triumph
BRUCE P. MONTGOMERY explores the legal battle of the General Accountability Office (GAO, formerly the General Accounting Office) over access to information detailing Vice President Richard B. Cheney’s national energy task force. He analyzes the politically charged fight, in which the GAO and the White House each sought to use the case as a means to expand its own institutional prerogatives. He concludes that the result was a significant victory for the George W. Bush administration’s aim of asserting presidential prerogatives at the expense of congressional oversight.
