H.R. 1009: OIRA Insight, Reform, and Accountability Act

Author's Summary:  To amend title 44, United States Code, to require the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs to review regulations, and for other purposes.

IB Summary:  This bill would require the OMB to review new rules passed by independent government agencies (e.g. CFPB), an oversight role that is currently encouraged but not required. Proponents argue this adds transparency to government activities; it is also a mechanism for implementing the Trump administration's regulatory rollback plans.

Status:   Passed House on 3/1/17.
