Congressional Issues 2012
Department of Commerce

Congress should
  • close the Department of Commerce and, in particular,
  • make the Bureau of the Census a small, independent agency;
  • restrict the census to enumerating the population, make answering other census questions voluntary, bar statistical sampling, and scrub the planned annual American Community Survey;
  • make the Patent and Trademark Office a small, independent agency or self-financing government corporation;
  • eliminate programs that inhibit or subsidize trade;
  • end all Commerce Department corporate subsidies and wealth transfer programs, including the Economic Development Administration, the Minority Business Development Administration, and the Technology Administration;
  • eliminate the National Telecommunications and Information Administration; and
  • phase out the functions of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, allowing them to be supplied by the private sector.
