Revisiting Yesterday’s Rules: The Congressional Review Act, Agency Stays, and Beyond

Both Congress and federal agencies have been undoing rules promulgated during the Obama Administration. Congress has been doing so through the Congressional Review Act, which has been successfully employed over a dozen times in 2017. Agencies have also been doing attempting to eliminate rules, often trying to stay regulations as they go through the process of undoing them. This teleconference will address these trends and assess what they mean for administrative law going forward.
