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.

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.

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.

Key Vote

Key Vote YES on H.J.Res. 36 and H.J.Res. 37 to Cancel Obama-Era Regulations

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote YES on resolutions of disapproval, H.J.Res. 36 and H.J.Res. 37, to cancel regulations submitted by the Bureau of Land Management and the Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Congress has the authority under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) of 1996 to effectively nullify regulations submitted for review by federal agencies within 60 legislative days.
