Here's the first salvo in the coming investigative fightback against the executive branch -- a hearing on "the new regulatory approach of the administration."
The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, chaired by Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), will hold a hearing tomorrow on "The Views of the Administration on Regulatory Reform." The hearing, scheduled for 10:00 a.m. in room 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building, is the first to examine the new regulatory approach outlined last week by President Obama and implemented by executive order.
In the Senate, Republicans are talking up ways to combat these regulations. They have, theoretically, the Congressional Review Act as their method of doing so. In the House, we're going to see hearings exposing the various regulators and regulations.
