The Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows Congress to undo any regulation the Executive branch issued in the last few months. Congressional Republicans are using it to roll back environmental protections. This week groups are doing coordinated calling on a bill that falls under CRA:
Ask McCain and Flake to oppose Senate Joint Resolution 11 which would reverse a law that required oil and gas companies to repair or replace equipment that leaks methane into the atmosphere. The House has already passed this resolution and the Senate may vote on it Tuesday or Wednesday.
