House Passes Bill Requiring Congressional Approval of Major Rule Changes to Federal Regulations

On August 2, 2013, the House of Representatives passed the “Regulations From the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2013” (H.R. 367). This bill, introduced by Rep. Todd Young (R-IN) on January 23, 2013, would require agencies to report to Congress whether a potential rule was a “major” or “non-major” rule. If an agency designates a rule as “major,” Congress would then have 70 legislative days to approve the rule. If not approved in this time period, the rule would not go into effect. This bill is the companion bill to S. 15, introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on February 26, 2013, and currently before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
