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.

Key Vote YES in the Senate on Resolutions of Disapproval Against Costly Federal Regulations

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to support resolutions of disapproval against costly regulations promulgated by federal agencies. H.J.Res. 38 and H.J.Res. 41 are aimed at regulations submitted for congressional review by the Department of the Interior and the Securities and Exchange Commission. The resolutions have passed the House of Representatives Wednesday.
