Between January and May, Republicans in Congress and the White House moved quickly to pass Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolutions of disapproval, repealing 14 public protections. Now they are using the CRA to target regulatory protections finalized during the Trump administration. Bolded votes indicate that the CRA resolution was voted down and the rule was kept in place.
*The Metropolitan Transportation Planning Standards were repealed by Congress through regular order, not the CRA.
The CRA’s carryover period ended on May 11, 2017. Five resolutions were introduced before the 15th legislative day of the 115th Congress (1/30/17), rendering them void under the Congressional Review Act: H.J. Res. 11, 16, 22, 34 and 35.
