The Autumn Congress may decide:

1Sunset clause on EU legislation


2Considering that:


11Believing that:

  • 12Old legislation is often outdated and no longer relevant for the member states.

  • 13Tons of old and irrelevant legislation makes the European Parliament more complex and

    14difficult for the european citizens to understand.

  • 15Relevant and updated legislation give the politicians better opportunities to change

    16existing legislation, which secures a national anchoring in the European system.

  • 17To ensure growing support for the EU, it's legislation must be updated and reflect the time

    18we live in.

  • 19A true democracy is transparent for its citizens.


20Calls for:

  1. 1.

    21An expiry date of 20 years for EU legislation, i.e. after 20 years there will be a mandatory
    22review of the legislation.

  2. 2.
