We already knew Congress could do a lot to roll back the administration's last-minute rules and regulations using the Congressional Review Act. Under a process that the Senate minority cannot filibuster, Congress can easily undo any regulations that have been published in the Federal Register in the last 60 legislative days. That means anything back through June 13.
Republicans in Congress have already announced their intention to roll back five relatively obscure rules, and several more high-profile ones are sure to follow. But on Thursday night, Kim Strassel came across something more interesting about how the CRA works. If she's right, this law is a lot more powerful than I thought, and apparently more powerful than most members of Congress thought as well.
