About damned time

What do the Democrats plan to do about oversight once they take control? According to the NYT, lots.

First, they plan to do what I suggested back here and resurrect the IG for Iraq Reconstruction's job. Then it's curtailing earmarks (or at least forcing members to put their names on them) and broadening or reallocating Transportation Security Administration funds beyond airports into mass transit and port security.

Good on 'em. I suspect these ideas will be popular with the public.
