ABSTRACT

Potential Coronavirus Implications for the Congressional Review Act   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction "In the regulatory-policy world, the spring of a presidential year is normally a particularly important time. It represents a rough deadline that agencies must meet in order to avoid the potential reach of the Congressional Review Act's (CRA) 'look-back provision' that allows a new administration and Congress to repeal certain rules issued under the previous administration. The Trump Administration - in concert with a fully Republican Congress - applied this power in historic fashion to repeal a cadre of Obama-era regulations, effectively wiping away billions of dollars in regulatory burdens. While right now typically marks that deadline, these are not normal times. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic (and Congress's response to it) introduces a higher level of volatility to this year's CRA calculus that is worth further consideration."
