Obama Administration - No More Rulings "Midnight Rule"

Obama Administation, That's all Folks 

Seems that the 114th Congress is making an effort in responding to The People of the nation. With Democratic flak at the bill, Midnight Rule Relief Act passed largely along party lines, by a 240-179 vote.  Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) urged his colleagues on the floor Thursday morning (11/17/2016) to pass the legislation and tell the American people that lawmakers heard them on Election Day loud and clear. 

“The American people have said no to the continuance of the Obama administration’s policies,”

The bill defines "midnight rule" as an agency statement of general applicability and future effect that is issued during the moratorium period, that is intended to have the force and effect of law, and that is designed to: (1) implement, interpret, or prescribe law or policy; or (2) describe the procedure or practice requirements of an agency. The "moratorium period" begins on the day after the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November in every fourth year succeeding a presidential election and extends through January 20 of the following year in which a President is not serving a consecutive term.

Happy Thanksgiving America 

Update 1/8/17

President Obama has issued 145 “midnight” regulations with a cost of $21 billion since President-elect Donald Trump.

Question, does Obama have the number for Two Men and a Truck?
