Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on sending four Congressional Review Act (CRA) bills to the President’s desk:
“Even before President Trump took office, Republicans in the House and Senate began working on one of our top priorities: taking power from Washington and giving it back to the people. Regulatory reform won’t just improve our economy, it will restore our constitutional structure of government and scale back an overgrown bureaucracy that has threatened the rights and freedoms of the American people.
“Over the past several weeks the House has passed 14 resolutions that repeal harmful regulations imposed by the Obama Administration. Today, we sent four Congressional Review Acts to the President’s desk to repeal rules that infringed on due process rights, cut state and local governments out of the decision-making process for public lands, and imposed Washington mandates on education. By scaling back the administrative state, Republicans are making government responsive to the people again.”
Note: The House sent Congressional Reviews Acts repealing the federal contracts blacklisting rule (H.J. Res. 37), the Bureau of Land Management Planning 2.0 rule (H.J. Res. 44), the education accountability rule (H.J. Res. 57), and the teacher preparation rule (H.J. Res. 58) to the President’s desk today.
