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.

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to support resolutions of disapproval against costly regulations promulgated by federal agencies. The resolutions are aimed at regulations submitted for congressional review by the Department of the Interior, the Securities and Exchange Commission, Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Bureau of Land Management.
