The GREAT USE Act was a particularly controversial piece of legislation in 2015-II that, originally proposed and failed earlier that trimester, was re-proposed with slight amendments shortly after Speaker Luke Cannon issued a statement saying he and Underspeaker Brayer would refuse to table any matter to come before them until the GREAT USE Act was passed. The law gives the Executive Branch the power to call individuals before it to testify on issues but the controversial aspect was giving the Administration a similar authority to call Executives before them so as to hold them accountable. The law also created two crimes: "contempt of the Executives" and "contempt of the Administration" and made minor appropriations to the central government account as well as gave more freedom to Major Task Forces as part of the compromise to get it barely passed through the Executive Branch.
