Congressional Review Act Resources
Federal agencies promulgating rules must submit a copy to both houses of Congress and GAO before the rules can take effect. (Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. § 801(a)(1)(A) )
We track all rules (major and nonmajor) submitted to us. We also report on major rules, summarizing and assessing the procedural steps taken by the federal agencies.
You can browse our reports on major rules and search all rules submitted to us. Your search results will include any reports on major rules GAO has issued.
