Stealth legislation refers to measures (riders) that make it through the legislative process by being hidden in the recesses of larger bills, such as spending bills. This usually allows the measures to escape public notice and remain absent from public debate. Stealth legislation is also referred to as Pearl Harbor, Time Bomb and Land Mine legislation.
