The League joined letters to the U.S. Senate in opposition to the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act of 2017 and the Midnight Rules Relief Act. Under the REINS Act, no major regulation could take effect unless it is approved by both houses of Congress in a small window of time, making it impossible to protect the public by shutting down the entire regulatory system including attacks on the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and many other consumer protection measures. The Midnight Rules Relief Act would amend the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to enable Congress to repeal many regulations at once by packaging them in a single resolution that would get expedited consideration and require only a majority of votes for passage in the Senate.
