Returning Government to the American People Act

Official Title

A bill to return the Government to the people by reviewing controversial "midnight regulations" issued in the waning days of the Bush Administration.


Returning Government to the American People Act - Declares that: (1) the Bush Administration should not rush into effect major new controversial regulations in its closing days; (2) the incoming Administration, working with the Congress, should review and, if appropriate, revise or reject such regulations; and (3) Congress should enact and the President should sign legislation necessary to ensure the new Administration has that opportunity.
