Abolishing a Federal Agency: The Interstate Commerce Commission

CRS – Abolishing a Federal Agency: The Interstate Commerce Commission, January 10, 2024. “Congress has, from time to time, enacted legislation to discontinue a federal agency and either redistribute or discontinue its functions. Abolishment of an agency or its functions has often been politically challenging because of the potential impact on stakeholders with competing interests. Frequently, it has also been administratively complex, involving myriad decisions about policies and the distribution of functions and resources during the winding down of the abolished agency. This report takes a closer look at the abolishment of one particular agency—the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC)—and most of its functions. It reviews, in historical context, the ICC’s establishment, growth, decline, and elimination.”
