NTU, Free Market Coalition Urge Congress to Rein in Regulations

by Pete Sepp / /


Over 50 Groups to Congress: Use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to Overturn Obama Regulations

Dear Senators and Representatives:

On behalf of the millions of Americans that our organizations represent, we are encouraged to see you take advantage of the unique opportunities afforded by the Congressional Review Act (CRA). The CRA is a powerful way for Congress to reassert its lawmaking authority and partner with the White House in bringing meaningful regulatory relief to millions of Americans across the country.

Congress has an important duty to work with the Trump administration in rolling back the regulatory avalanche of the last eight years. 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.

We therefore applaud your already announced resolutions of disapproval under the CRA, support their timely passage, and urge additional efforts to use the CRA to bring as much permanent regulatory relief to the American people as possible.

Sincerely,

Brent Gardner, Chief Government Affairs Officer
