Issue Analysis

Combating the Regulatory State Through Congressional Action

In recent days, Congress has targeted several midnight rules, those finalized and published in the final days of the Obama administration, through the Congressional Review Act. The effort is part of the rediscovery of Article I of the Constitution and the separation of powers, as well as the threats the regulatory state presents to the economy. In this issue brief, FreedomWorks offers background on the Congressional Review Act, the law's deficiencies, how to give it teeth through the passage of the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act.

Congress Moves to Cancel Obama-Era Regulations Under the Congressional Review Act

Since the Congressional Review Act became law in 1996 through the 114th Congress, more than 120 resolutions of disapproval have been introduced to cancel regulations promulgated by federal agencies. The Congressional Review Act gives Congress 60 legislative days after a federal agency submits a rule for review. Between the 104th Congress and the 114th Congress, only one resolution of disapproval canceling a rule passed by both chambers of Congress and was signed into law.

Earlier today, a quartet of Republican senators — Bill Cassidy (R-La.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.), and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) — introduced the Patient Freedom Act, S. 191.
