Summary note
Provides background on the Congressional Review Act (CRA), which established various measures and rules giving Congress the power of review over Federal agency final rules. Notes the practice of increased rulemaking activity during final months of a Presidential administration, and describes how this practice has been addressed by the Bush Administration. Identifies key elements of the complex set of time periods established by CRA that define points during the disapproval process at which various actions may occur. Identifies dates in previous sessions of Congress after which rules have been subject to these carryover provisions, identifies some of the rules that may be issued in the final months of the current Bush Administration, and considers potential effect of carryover period on rules issued late in the second session of the 110th Congress.
