The Congressional Review Act (CRA) – IF10023 published on

What is the CRA? The CRA (codified at 5 U.S.C. §§ 801- 808) is an oversight tool Congress can use to overturn certain agency actions. The CRA requires agencies to report the issuance of “rules” to Congress and provides Congress with special procedures under which to consider legislation to overturn rules, in the form of a joint resolution of disapproval. The CRA was enacted as part of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) in 1996. If a CRA joint resolution of disapproval is approved by both houses and signed by the President, or if Congress overrides a presidential veto, the rule at issue cannot go into effect or continue in effect.
