The Congressional Review Act (CRA) lets Congress strike down regulatory protections issued in the final months of the last administration using expedited procedures. Hundreds of health, safety, pocketbook and environmental protections are in danger of being wiped out as payback to the GOP’s corporate donors, and we won’t be able to get these safeguards back any time soon. If repealed, corporate predators, polluters, pickpockets and profiteers will be free to abuse, exploit and discriminate against regular Americans, knowing they won’t be held accountable.
At any time, the White House could sign the CRA resolutions repealing these protections, which already have been axed in both chambers of Congress:
- The Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order
- The BLM’s Land Use Planning Rule
- The Alaska National Wildlife Refuges Rule
- OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule
- Unemployment Compensation Drug Testing Rules
- ESSA Accountability and State Plan Rules
- ESSA Teacher Preparation Standards
