FreedomWorks’ Bill of the Month for November 2018: Resolution for the Article One Restoration Act, H.Res. 330

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for June 2018 is the resolution for the Article One Restoration Act, H.Res. 330, sponsored by Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio). The resolution, which is cosponsored by such freedom fighters as Reps. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), would direct House Committees to review laws within their jurisdiction to eliminate executive branch overreach in applying these laws. This type of congressional oversight of the executive is much needed.

Support the Guidance Out of Darkness (GOOD) Act, S. 2296 and H.R. 4809

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and representative and ask them to support the Guidance Out Of Darkness (GOOD) Act, S. 2296 and H.R. 4809, introduced by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.). The bill would require federal agencies to post regulatory guidance documents online, making them more accessible to those businesses affected by the guidance and to the American public generally.

While Traveling This Labor Day, Remember This: TSA Expands Bureaucracy, Spending, and Regulation Without Improving Safety

There is an agency in Washington that spends over $7 billion per year and employs about 60,000 people nationwide, yet fails to do its one job 95% of the time when tested. Nearly half of the agency’s employees have received complaints for misconduct in the last three years. Private companies providing the identical services are 65% more efficient while costing taxpayers less money.

Legislation Combats IRS Abuse of Free Speech, Privacy Rights

This week, the House will consider a bill that would stop the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from collecting identifying information about donors to tax-exempt organizations. The IRS, in repeatedly using tax disclosures to create political targets, has prompted a chilling effect on First Amendment rights and political free speech.

Congress Intensifies Battle Against Regulators As New Rules Grab Legislative Power

During a week in which regulators added $12.8 billion in costs, Congress intensified its battle against the regulatory state. This regulatory outburst comes as no surprise during Obama's final months in office. Earlier this month, regulators rushed to release a flood of regulations, hoping to enact new rules before the newly elected administration takes over.

Regulations Work Overtime to Hurt Employees, Small Businesses

Last week, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) announced revisions to the proposed rules interpreting the Fair Labor Standard Act’s regulations on the overtime compensation pay of white-collar, salaried workers. Currently, salaried employees making more than $23,660 annually are exempt from the DOL requirement that employers pay time-and-a-half for each hour over 40 hours weekly. The final rule, with several key changes to the proposed rule, will extend overtime pay protections to over 40 million American workers.

Bill's Not Just a Bill. And He's Not Just Sitting Here on Capitol Hill.

As the "drop dead date" for Obama administration regulations draws near, we are expecting a flood of "midnight regulations." Regulatory agencies, in an eleventh-hour attempt to pass new rules before the start of the next administration, will make a huge push in ushering in new proposals. In preparation for this regulatory outburst, we have provided a brief guide explaining how proposed rules become regulations.

With Seven-Day Extension, Obama Midnight is Dark and Full of Regulatory Terrors

The "drop dead date" for federal regulations is fast approaching and we are expecting more overreaching proposals. This is the last date that proposed rules can be finalized by the Obama administration, without fear that the next President will overturn them under the Congressional Review Act. Regulatory agencies are expected to release a flood of regulations before this date. This regulatory outburst, first noted in the final days of the Carter Administration, is known as "midnight regulations."
