Anyone who’s wanted a shot at eliminating a government agency now has a chance to weigh in.

A new survey released by the White House asks Americans which government agencies they’d like to eliminate — and just about everything is on the table.

An official questionnaire asks voters for their ideas for “reforming the executive branch” and allows respondents to select any Cabinet department or federal agency for reform or total elimination.

{mosads}President Trump has tasked his budget director, Mick Mulvaney, with streamlining the federal government and making the executive branch more efficient, according to the site. 

Trump’s administration is looking for “ways to reorganize the executive branch and eliminate unnecessary agencies,” according to the survey.

Options for agencies to be eliminated include the entire Office of the President, as well as the CIA and other major areas of the government.

Survey respondents are asked to submit their ideas to “reorganize the executive branch” by June 12.
