30. Apologies if I oversimplified it. That isn't what I meant

It isn't that Congress appropriates and then the executive does whatever it wants. Congress can set all kinds of requirements. They just can't insert themselves into the ongoing management. If they created a new federal gun registration system (we're ignoring other constitutional issues here), they could say that the fee could be waived based on need... but the agency involved (ATF?) would set up the enacting regulations a create a fee waiver process. Congress could appropriate more or fewer funds to make the program work... but they couldn't write a law that said "all fee waivers must be approved by staff on the Senate Security Committee"
