‘Oversight Riders’ won the 2021 Levin Center Award for Excellence in Oversight Research, a yearly award by the Levin Center to promote constructive research into oversight by legislative bodies. The Levin Center Award for Excellence in Oversight Research is designed to encourage, acknowledge, and heighten the visibility of scholarly papers examining important oversight issues at the national, state, tribal, local or international levels.
Professor Stack and Professor Vandenbergh, both from Vanderbilt Law School, offer a compelling, timely, and original thesis on an important appropriations mechanism long overlooked as a way to create personal incentives for executive branch officials to comply with congressional information requests.
