The Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows Congress to strike down regulations issued in the final months of the last administration using expedited procedures. As a result, hundreds of health, safety, pocketbook and environmental protections are in danger of being repealed, and we won’t be able to get them back any time soon. If these rules are repealed, corporate predators, polluters and pickpockets will be free to abuse, exploit and discriminate against American workers, consumers and families — knowing they won’t be held accountable. View the complete list of major rules at risk of repeal.
UPDATE: The New York Times pens another editorial against the Congressional Review Act. Pages throughout this site are being updated daily with new links and resources. Congress is currently in recess and will return on Monday, February 27. We anticipate more CRA resolutions next week. Check back daily for further updates.
