Контрольная функция парламента: парламентские комиссии по расследованию и счетные палаты
This article is devoted to the development and practices of parliamentary commissions of inquiry and account chambers. By analyzing the process of the institutionalization of investigation commissions, we highlight the main shortcomings of the regulation of parliamentary investigation. For example, a restrictive list of objects under parliament control, the failure of the mechanism which should be used for considering the results of finished investigations, or the lack of transparency in activities of parliamentary commissions of inquiry. We argue for the need of careful analysis of different approaches to organizing and providing parliament investigations in Russian regions, and also question of how the results of parliamentary investigations influence the political agenda.

The article considers the emergence of budgetary rights in some foreign countries (UK, France, Germany, the USA), as well as, in more detail, the emergence and evolution of these rights in Russia. It include the imperial period, the period of revolution, the Soviet period and the modern history. In the article founded several scenarios for the emergence of budgetary rights of parliament. It is proposed to increase the level of budget law of the Russian parliament from technical control over the activities of the government to the level of supervision of compliance with certain principles in the activities of the public authorities.
