Issa’s Midnight Rules Relief Act Passes House of Representatives

Press Release
Nov 17, 2016

Congressman Darrell Issa released the following statement after the US House of Representatives passed Congressman Issa’s bill to enhance congressional oversight of the overreaching regulations often issued during the final months of a president’s term. Congressman Issa’s bill -- the Midnight Rules Relief Act (H.R. 5982) – passed the House today in a 240-179 vote.

 
“This bipartisan bill is about reviving the separation of powers to ensure our laws are written by the Representatives we actually vote for – not unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats who are on their way out the door. Presidents of both parties have made habit of enacting scores of last-minute regulations, with little oversight, to sneak in as much of their agenda as possible before the clock runs out on their time in office. The bill helps ensure this President, and any future president, will be held in check and that their policies have the proper level of scrutiny by both Congress and the American people. I’m pleased to see the House pass this important measure and look forward to its quick passage by our colleagues in the Senate.”
