Stream Protection Rule

On February 16, 2017, H.J. Res. 38 was signed into law by President Trump. The measure was passed by the Senate on February 2, 2017 and the House of Representatives on February 1, 2017.

On December 19, 2016, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) released its final Stream Protection Rule. The rule rewrites over 400 regulations threatening one-third of the nation’s coal mining workforce. During the rulemaking process, OSM shut out cooperating agencies – the states responsible for enforcing federal mining regulations. They also ignored existing regulatory success at the federal and state level. Overturning this rule will protect American jobs and provide certainty to the state regulatory bodies tasked with enforcing existing federal mining regulations.

What is the Congressional Review Act?

The Congressional Review Act is a powerful Congressional resolution of disapproval to overturn last minute regulations from the previous Administration under an expedited legislative process. Passage of the CRA ensures that no substantially similar rule can be issued in the future.
