ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 6730, Injunctive Authority Clarification Act of 2018   [open pdf - 29KB]

"H.R. 6730 would prohibit federal courts from issuing injunctions that restrain defendants from enforcing policies against non-parties to civil actions. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] expects that the bill would limit the issuance of nationwide injunctions. In recent years, district courts have issued dozens of nationwide injunctions that have temporarily stopped the executive branch from implementing immigration, environmental, and other policies. Such injunctions affect the scope of and timeframes for implementing new policies and programs, and sometimes affect the amount and pace of federal spending."
