This course covers state and federal powers to conduct oversight and investigations of governmental entities, primarily those in the executive department of government by focusing on the scope and nature of informal and formal oversight such as oversight hearings, specialized studies, citizen and select study committees, legislative agency activity, subpenas and examinations, legislative review of administrative rules, removal of executive and judicial officers through impeachment and address, and how legislative fact-finding compliments and collides with other law enforcement investigations and prosecutions.
