The Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows either the Senate or the House to introduce a Resolution of Disapproval with the full force of law to stop a federal agency from implementing a recent rule or regulation. A Resolution of Disapproval introduced under the CRA cannot be filibustered and needs only a simple majority in the Senate to pass if acted upon during a 60-day window.
