H. Rept. 116-45: Rescinding DHS' Waiver Authority for Border Wall Act, Report Together with Minority Views to Accompany H.R. 1232, May 2, 2019   [open pdf - 249KB]

From the Document: "H.R. 1232, the 'Rescinding DHS' Waiver Authority for Border Wall Act' repeals the overly broad authority of the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) to waive all legal requirements that, in the Secretary's view, may delay construction of barriers and roads at the U.S. border. Under current law, the Secretary has sole discretion to determine what laws and regulations need to be waived and judicial review over these decisions is extremely limited. Rescinding this authority would ensure that the Department of Homeland Security adheres to the same laws any other federal department or agency would have to follow."
