Congress relocation: reduce special interest power

Reduce the power of special interest lobbies and increase accountability to citizens by shifting the physical location of elected representatives back to their local geographic areas. With current technology, it is possible for elected officials in the Congress to remain in their election districts and not relocate to Washington DC. This makes it much more difficult for special interest groups to focus their resources in a single location, and it greatly increases local citizens ability to directly influence their representatives. Physical relocation is based on a time when transportation was by horse and communication by pigeon.
