As President Donald Trump reaches his
100th day in the White House on April 29, he will have worked with
Congress to rescind more regulations using the Congressional Review Act
than any other president.
“We’re excited about what we’re doing
so far. We’ve done more than that’s ever been done in the history of
Congress with the CRA,” Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., told The Daily Signal
in an interview, referring to the law called the Congressional Review
The Congressional Review Act, the tool Trump and lawmakers are using
to undo these regulations, allows Congress to repeal executive branch
regulations in a certain window of time.
“Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress is given 60 legislative
days to disapprove a rule and receive the president’s signature, after
which the rule goes into effect,” Paul Larkin, a senior legal research
fellow at The Heritage Foundation, wrote in a February report. The 60
days begins after Congress is notified that a rule has been finalized.
