Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 5) to reform the process by which Federal agencies analyze and formulate new regulations and guidance documents, to clarify the nature of judicial review of agency interpretations, to ensure complete analysis of potential impacts on small entities of rules, and for other purposes, and providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 79) to clarify the definition of general solicitation under Federal securities law.
Though it isn't explained very clearly, the language about "clarify[ing] the nature of judicial review of agency interpretations" sounds like a separation of powers problem to me. Unless I'm mistaken, Congress does not have the power to tell the courts how they should review agency interpretations of their, and I am suspicious of any attempts to do so. Thanks to Rep. Pocan for voting "nay."
My expectation is that I am represented by a lawmaker who is a model of transparent, honest, and ethical behavior, and who holds his peers up to those standards as well. Today, more than ever, we need you to truly represent your constituents, and not your personal agenda.
