REP. KEN BUCK CHAMPIONS RULE TO REASSERT ARTICLE I AUTHORITY OF CONGRESS
From the Greeley Tribune
The House Republican Conference on Tuesday announced the new rules for the next session of Congress, which includes a rule from Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., prioritizing the Article I authority of Congress.
Buck’s rule ensures the House of Representatives spends time considering legislation to reassert the Article I authority of the legislative branch.
Between excessive rule-making and executive orders, the executive branch has overstepped its constitutional authority to simply execute the laws made by Congress, stated a news release from Buck.
“Republicans promised to roll back President (Barack) Obama’s oppressive regulatory regime,” Buck said. “This House rule allows Congress to reassert its rightful authority over the executive branch by repealing excessive regulations and overreaching executive orders.”
