Regulators Did Not Properly Report 1,000 Regulations To Congress, New AAF Research Finds

The American Action Forum (@AAF) today released research examining regulators’ compliance with the Congressional Review Act (CRA). AAF found that in 2015 regulators failed to send roughly 1,000 rules to the Government Accountability Office for review as required by the CRA, up from approximately 900 rules in 2014.

“Despite assurances from Administrator Shelanski, agencies still do not follow basic legal reporting requirements. Congress has a constitutional responsibility to conduct oversight of the executive, and without compliance from the administration, this oversight grows more difficult,” says Sam Batkins, AAF’s Director of Regulatory Policy.
