CONGRESSIONAL REVIEW ACT
The CRA requires agencies to submit every rule to Congress for its review, and it defines “rule” broadly to sweep in most guidance documents. Congress can then schedule simple-majority votes to disapprove rules it dislikes using fast-track procedures.
The CRA’s potential to eliminate unreasonably costly or illegal rules is not limited to “midnight” rules. Powerful new ideas to use the CRA for older rules not reported to Congress are causing great excitement. This is a regulatory game changer!
Independent reports confirm the vast number of regulations that agencies did not report to Congress. Some of the worst rules are already in our database. Help us find and report more rules that were never submitted to Congress.
The new idea for Congress to fully utilize the CRA, advocated by Pacific Legal Foundation’s Todd Gaziano, is a “regulatory game changer.”Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal
