It can be said of regulatory commissions that:
A.the commissioners pursue independent and impartial policies, regardless of politcal pressure from democrats or republicans in congress.
B. unlike presidential appointees in other areas, regulatory heads choose which civil servants will work in their agencies, and thus have the full loyalty of career bureaucrats.
C.the broad discretion these commissions have over regulatory policy means that a change in their memembership can have a significant impact.
D.unlike presidential appointees in other areas, the president can hire and fire the heads of regulatory commissions whenever he or she chooses.
