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.

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 YES on the Regulatory Accountability Act, H.R. 5

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and urge him or her to vote YES on the Regulatory Accountability Act, H.R. 5, introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). The legislation seeks to reform the regulatory process, making it more transparent for the American people and more accountable to Congress. It also includes language to reverse the Chevron deference, which has been used by regulatory agencies to enact law without judicial review.

Congress Should Use the REINS Act to Combat the Regulatory State

In the Broadway musical-turned-movie, 1776, John Adams ranted to the Second Continental Congress that it had stalled his proposals for independence from King George III and Great Britain. Delegates, even those who wanted a diplomatic solution to rather than war, blasted King George for running roughshod over the rights of colonists, restricting trade, and taxing them without representation in parliament.

The Case for Scott Pruitt to Lead the EPA

The mainstream media’s misrepresentation of Scott Pruitt as an unsophisticated crony of the powerful energy lobby couldn’t be farther from the truth. In nominating Pruitt to lead the Environmental Protection Agency, President-elect Donald Trump has selected someone willing to defend the American people’s values, and the Senate should confirm him as soon as possible.

FreedomWorks Praises Adoption of the “Holman Rule” by the House of Representatives

FreedomWorks today praised the inclusion of the “Holman Rule” in the rules package that passed the House of Representatives Tuesday by a vote of 234 to 193. The provision, which is effective only for the first session of the 115th Congress, allows Members to introduce amendments to appropriations bills on the floor of the lower chamber to reduce the size of a federal agency’s workforce or adjust compensation for certain federal employees, who, according to a 2015 study by the Cato Institute, earn an average of 78 percent more than workers in the private sector.
