Law of frimaire

The Law of Frimaire was passed on 4 December 1793, during the French Revolution, in which power became centralized and consolidated under the Committee of Public Safety. It stopped representatives on-mission from taking 'action' without the authority of the Committee.

This was an attempt to bring order to the Reign of Terror and make the representatives more accountable.[1]
