Title: Mandate for leadership: policy management in a conservative administration. [report by Heritage Foundation]

Abstract

Mandate for leadership was conceived in the fall of 1979 as a means of assisting the transition to a new administration in the event that a conservative President were elected in 1980. The premise was that conservatives must be prepared to answer the question, What is the conservative agenda, particularly for the first 100 days. The production of this volume has been an enterprise involving twenty project teams and over three hundred contributors. Three parts are devoted, respectively, to: (I) The Cabinet Departments (13 chapters); (II) Independent Regulatory Agencies (13 chapters); and (III) Other Agencies (6 chapters). Also, there is an epilogue, What the President Can Do by Executive Order. The authors of the chapters in this report were recruited as team chairmen for their respective agencies or groups of agencies; each then recruited a team for the production of the report according to certain guidelines. The principal credit for the success of the project belongs to these authors, who translated the concept of a transition report into a detailed and illuminating study of the executive branch of the federal government. The Environmental Protection Agency was pulled out of the regulatory reform group in mid-stream and established as an independentmore » team with over fifty participants due to the mammoth size and unique character of the agency. Recommendations of this volume are not presented as cure-alls, but the editors feel that what is offered by the authors is a series of proposals which, if implemented, will help revitalize our economy, strengthen our national security, and halt the centralization of power in The Federal government. A separate abstract was prepared for each of three chapters, namely: (1) The Department of Energy; (2) The Department of Transportation; and (3) The Environmental Protection Agency.« less
