Following the passage of the Midnight Rules Relief Act, H.R. 5982, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“The Obama administration’s regulatory agenda has been damaging to the economy and destructive to the separation of powers in Article I of the Constitution. While Congress has a long road ahead to restore Article I and reclaim its power from the executive branch, the Midnight Rules Relief Act is a step toward that goal. This bill simply allows Congress, under the Congressional Review Act, to reject multiple last-minute regulations promulgated by federal agencies in a single resolution.”

“We’re glad to see the House pass the Midnight Rules Relief Act, and we urge the Senate to act on the bill. We also urge Republican leadership to work with the House Freedom Caucus and continue the effort to restore the legislative branch’s constitutional role.”
