BREAKING: FLORIDA REPUBLICAN Introduces NEW LAW To REPEAL ALL FEDERAL REGULATIONS


By John Paluska, Founder of The Daily Fodder

Representative Bill Posey (R-FL-8) recently introduced a bill that would "sunset" any federal regulations after 3 years unless Congress reapproved them. Executive agencies CANNOT reauthorize, revise, or take any regulatory action unless Congress reapproves the federal representations themselves.

The bill states:

SEC. 2. SUNSET OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS AFTER 3 YEARS. 

    (a) Sunset.—Any covered rule issued by an agency after the date of the enactment of this Act shall sunset on the date that is three years after the effective date of such covered rule, unless specifically reauthorized by an Act of Congress. 

    (b) After Sunset.—An agency may not reissue, enforce, revise, or take other regulatory action related to a covered rule that has sunset under subsection (a). 

    (c) Oversight By OMB And Heads Of Agencies.—The Director of the Office of Management and Budget or the head of the relevant agency may oversee the sunset of covered rules under subsection (a).

SEC. 3. SUBMISSION OF REQUEST FOR REAUTHORIZATION TO CONGRESS.

    (a) Request For Reauthorization.—If the head of an agency that issues covered rules wants to request a reauthorization for such rules, such head shall, not later than the December 1 that is one year before the date on which the covered rule is scheduled to sunset, submit to Congress and any appropriate committee of Congress a report containing such request that includes—

        (1) a justification for the reauthorization of each covered rule;

        (2) any related covered rules; and

        (3) any recommendation or request made by the chair or ranking member of an appropriate committee of Congress.

And in case anyone thinks Congress can just issue a bill allowing the continuance of all federal regulations without any respect to individual regulations, the bill makes that expressly illegal by stating that the agency heads must request reauthorization for the regulations themselves before Congress can reauthorize them. 

The bill is titled the "Article I Restoration Act of 2021" and can be read in its entirety at Congress.gov.
