A presidential line item veto power should be included as well as a provision requiring Congress to pass a budget by September 30 or the previous fiscal year budget would be enacted automatically.

2. All new programs must be revenue neutural.

3. All agencies should be required to evaluate each of their programs over a period of ten years and report results annually to the President for the purpose of determining their future and/or adjustments.
