Club for Growth Applauds House Republicans for Using Congressional Review Act

Doug Sachtleben - January 31st, 2017

“It’s the beginning of the end for some of the worst and costliest Obama rules.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to the announcement by Speaker Paul Ryan that the House will use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to vote on five resolutions of disapproval this week:

“It’s the beginning of the end for some of the worst and costliest Obama rules,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “House Republicans are launching an effort that will be unquestionably pro-growth, by fending off the economic damage posed by these unnecessary federal rules. When I drafted the Congressional Review Act in 1996, it was my hope that it would become an essential part of Congress’ oversight of the Executive Branch. It’s great to see the CRA at the forefront of Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McCarthy’s response to the torrent of rules left behind by the Obama Administration. This week’s actions should be the beginning of dozens of CRA resolutions by House Republicans in the weeks ahead.”
