Democrats Are Trying to Repeal the Tool Congress Has to Hold the Regulatory State Accountable

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) have introduced legislation that would repeal one of the tools that give Congress greater oversight of actions taken by federal agencies. Passed in 1996 as part of the Contract with American Advancement Act, the Congressional Review Act provided Congress with power to canceled rules finalized and published by federal agencies.

Dark Days in Connecticut

Last month, Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-Conn.) announced that he will not seek, and he will not accept, the nomination of his party for another term as governor. This is not all that surprising as he sits at at a 66 percent disapproval rating, tying him for the second highest disapproval rating of any governor.

Washington Implements Right to Try

On May 5, 2017, Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) signed SB 5035, making Washington the 35th Right to Try state. The Right to Try law allows drugs that have passed the initial phase of FDA testing to be tried by various individuals despite the fact the drug has not yet gone through the lengthy process of full approval by the agency.

House Must Repeal the Durbin Amendment in Financial CHOICE Act

There has been much debate over the past week about the Financial CHOICE Act introduced by Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas). The bill, which FreedomWorks supports, would significantly reform the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that was passed in 2010 to purportedly address the causes of the 2007-2008 recession.

The Mayor of Baltimore Kills Job Killing Minimum Wage Hike

On Friday, March 24, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh vetoed a new $15 minimum wage that would have been implemented by 2022. This makes passing the measure’s future in serious doubt since an override of the mayor’s veto requires 12 out of 15 city council members to vote against and already several who voted for the measure have decided not to support an override.

Register of Copyrights Office Goes Rogue?

In late March, the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act, H.R. 1695, was introduced into the House of Representatives. The bill’s aim is to make the position of the Register of Copyrights an appointee of the President, rather than be chosen by the Librarian of Congress. The bill was sponsored House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and ranking member John Conyers (D-Mich.). As it stands now, the Register of Copyrights/Director of the Copyright Office is appointed by the Librarian of Congress.

The Future of Right to Work

Three months ago, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted against becoming the 29th “Right to Work” state, which would have made it the first “Right to Work” state in New England. Despite support from Gov. Chris Sununu and the state Senate, it was not able to break the necessary threshold to get out of the house.

Lawsuit Threatens Congressional Tool for Fighting Overreaching Regulations

A radical environmentalist organization has filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking to strike down the Congressional Review Act, a 1996 law that allows Congress to cancel final rules published by federal agencies. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) has been used heavily in the 115th Congress to cancel last-minute rules finalized by the Obama administration.

Support the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, S. 993

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Restoring Internet Freedom Act, S. 993, introduced by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). The bill would repeal the Federal Communications Commission’s 2015 Open Internet Order, through which the agency claimed regulatory power over the Internet, designating Internet service providers (ISPs) as “common carriers” under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934.
