House Passes Law to Stop Last Minute Obama Tricks (Video)

(Before It's News)

The House of Representatives passed legislation on Wednesday giving Congress the power to kill so-called “midnight rules”, months of recently enacted Obama administration regulations with just one vote, as Republicans charged ahead on their campaign to strip down federal regulations.

If passed by the Senate and signed by President-elect Donald Trump, the legislation would amend the Congressional Review Act to allow lawmakers to bundle together multiple rules and overturn them en masse with a joint resolution of disapproval. The White House has already threatened to veto the bill if it were to make it to President Obama’s desk before he leaves office.

“Because outgoing administrations are no longer accountable to the voters, they are much more prone to issue midnight regulations that fly in the face of the electoral mandate the voters just gave the new, incoming administration,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte before the vote. “Waves of midnight rules can also be very hard for Congress or a new administration to check adequately.”

It was the second time the Republican-dominated chamber took up legislation blocking “midnight rules,” those rolled out at the close of a president’s term. However, the previous bill, introduced in November, had faced a certain veto from President Barack Obama, a Democrat. On its second day back in session, the House passed the bill on a vote of 238 to 184.

Under a law known as the Congressional Review Act, Congress has the right to review regulations for a certain period of time after they are issued. That means any federal regulation approved since May could be voided by the Republican-led Congress once President-elect Donald Trump moves into the White House and can sign off on their disapproval.

  • Oh, you mean the same Republican House that wants to get rid of the independent ethics committee?

  • Surely, everyone realizes, just as Obama does, that rules and laws only exist on a piece of paper and only have value if they are enforced. If, like Obama, Trump instructs Justice to turn a blind eye to certain infractions, then the law/rule effectively is non-existent.

    ….and there you have it!

  • ALL can be undone not matter what it is, (laws, regulations, executive orders, etc.) May take some time but it can be undone!
