Our experts discussed how they expect the Congressional Review Act to be used in the new congress. Panelists offered presentations and answered questions about how this little-used high-profile statute might be invoked to rollback recent regulations including possible amendments to the Act that could streamline its use, and regulations that might be subject to the Act.
