Walter Shaub’s Ethics Recommendations for the Government

• Require the federal government’s 4,000 or so political appointees to prepare formal ethics agreements with their agencies that detail in writing what they cannot do without a conflict of interest, such as taking an action that might benefit a former employer or a company to which they have financial ties.Continue reading the main story• Require that these employees sign statements that they have taken the necessary steps to comply with the ethics agreements, and then publicly post those statements, along with the original ethics agreements, on a government website. Currently, only about 1,100 federal employees must negotiate ethics agreements and sign statements of compliance.A Little More Difficult• Grant the ethics office limited subpoena power to ensure that federal agencies and employees are honoring ethics requirements. Make it easier for the office to recommend discipline for employees who have violated rules. (Mr. Shaub is not asking for broad powers for the office to conduct investigations by interviewing witnesses or to formally punish violators.)• Allow the agency to propose its budget and legislative changes directly to Congress, in addition to sending them to the Office of Management and Budget, through which such proposals must currently be cleared.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.• Require that federal employees, including the president, disclose business liabilities and debts in entities that they control. Currently, they are only required to disclose debts for which they are personally responsible.• Require that federal employees disclose assets that are placed in so-called discretionary trusts, investment vehicles that hold property they may benefit from but are not currently controlling.A Much Harder Sell• Require presidential and vice-presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns to the Federal Election Commission and file them with the Office of Government Ethics, as they must currently do with more limited financial information.• Create a new conflict of interest standard that applies to the president and vice president. It would be more flexible than the one governing all other federal employees.This standard would prevent the president from holding an interest in a privately held company or a controlling interest in a publicly held company that does business with the federal government. A limit might also be imposed on compensation to the president for the use of his or her name while in office.Such a requirement would prompt a negotiation between the president and the ethics office similar to those currently conducted with the president’s appointees.

U.S. Agency Moves to Allow Class-Action Lawsuits Against Financial Firms

President Trump finally did what he kept threatening to do.

In seemingly choreographed lockstep with President Trump’s revelation that the U.S. would exit the Paris Agreement, the Environmental Protection Agency announced on Thursday a buyout program to begin the process of cutting its staffing levels.

According to an internal memo from Acting Deputy Administrator Mike Flynn (not that Mike Flynn), the EPA’s offer encourages “voluntary separations” that would cause “minimal disruption to the workforce.”

The workforce was plenty disrupted, however, by the budget proffered earlier this year by the Trump administration. It basically suggests taking a blowtorch to the agency — proposing a 31 percent budget cut and the elimination of 3,200 out of the EPA’s 15,000 jobs.

The proposed buyout will cost $12 million, and will first have to be approved by the Office of Management and Budget. The agency hopes to complete the cuts by September.

If approved, the buyouts may be popular. After Trump was elected, some EPA career staff cried, others set up rogue Twitter accounts, some quit, and others just waited anxiously for what would come next. Now we know: The newly arrived EPA honchos are sharpening their knives.
