Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 21, the Midnight Rules Relief Act:

“The federal bureaucracy is out of control. Without the consent of the people or their representatives, unelected bureaucrats are publishing massive amounts of regulations in the final days of the Obama Administration—regulations that subvert the will of the people and will cost us money and jobs. The Midnight Rules Relief Act allows Congress to put these last-minute regulations from the Obama Administration on the chopping block all at once, giving the Trump Administration a cleaner slate and refuting overactive meddling by unelected executive employees.”
