*The Metropolitan Transportation Planning Standards were repealed by Congress through regular order, not the CRA.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.
