Seven House Republicans on Tuesday introduced legislation that would prohibit a lame duck president from issuing significant regulations.
The Midnight Rule Relief act, H.R. 4607, follows an April letter from House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) that urged President Obama not to pass any "midnight regulations."
"We believe that issuing a raft of midnight regulations would be inconsistent with your January 2009 commitment to transparency and accountability in the rulemaking process," they wrote.
