Regs in the Crosshairs - Andrew Kreighbaum, Inside Higher Ed

A Congressional Research Service memo released last week found that regulations submitted to Congress after May 30, 2016, would be subject to review under a little-used tool called the Congressional Review Act. With control of the White House and both chambers of Congress, the GOP has said one of its first priorities will be rolling back regulations affecting labor, finance, the environment, higher education and other policy areas. Republican leaders are examining multiple options to do so, including the Congressional Review Act. The act would provide an expedited path for reconsideration of agency regulations by Congress. Terry Hartle, senior vice president for government and public affairs at the American Council on Education, said Congress and the administration of President-elect Donald Trump will have multiple avenues to roll back regulations.
