Coalition: Congress Should Use Congressional Review Act to Overturn Obama Regulations Print
Tuesday, January 31 2017

In a letter sent today, the Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") joined with more than 50 organizations to applaud Congress's use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to "reassert its lawmaking authority and partner with the White House in bringing meaningful regulatory relief to millions of Americans across the country," and to urge "additional efforts to use the CRA to bring as much permanent regulatory relief to the American people as possible."

"Congress has an important duty to work with the Trump administration in rolling back the regulatory avalanche of the last eight years," the letter reads.  "Processing resolutions of disapproval under the CRA is an essential tool for this because overturning regulations via the CRA creates a permanent bar against regulators imposing substantially similar rules in the future without seeking express authorization from Congress."

The letter was organized by Americans for Prosperity.  The entire letter can be read here (PDF).
