"I will require sunsetting of all federal regulations, unless specifically sustained by a vote of Congress," Pawlenty said. Two major Obama administration legislative victories -- health care and Wall Street reform -- would be specifically targeted.

Well hell, apparently the Patriot Act was sunsetted, but it has been renewed... twice?

Doesn't seem to scare politicians re approving bad legislation.

I would set in a requirement that any legislation that gets extended more than, say, 20 years past it's original death date has to be enacted as an ammendment to the constitution if they still want to keep it.

Yes, that's a pain in the ass, but anything on the books for over 20 years is either way outdated or should be in the constitution.
