From The Epoch Times:

“The Constitution requires Congress to appropriate funds annually for agencies to spend,” R Street Institute Vice President Kevin Kosar told The Epoch Times. The El Chapo Act “would have agencies taking in money and spending it without an appropriation.”

Kosar said the “practice has drawn the ire of conservatives in recent years, including Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.), who introduced legislation to curb agencies from spending money that has not been appropriated.”

Kosar’s group describes itself as “a free-market think tank with a pragmatic approach to public policy challenges.”
