Professor Rena Steinzor Testifies before Congress on Congressional Review Act

On September 28, Professor Rena Steinzor, Maryland’s Edward M. Robertson Professor, testified before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform at a hearing on agency compliance with the Congressional Review Act (CRA).  In her testimony Professor Steinzor recommended that Congress consider repealing the CRA which has been used during the Trump administration to kill 14 rules at the behest of special interests in the fossil fuel and financial industries. She debunked the notion that agencies frequently fail to submit significant regulations to Congress for review, noting that even estimates of 5% noncompliance have been overstated. A copy of Professor Steinzor’s testimony is available online here.
