Regardless of party, changes in administration bring new priorities, new electoral mandates, and the incoming president’s first opportunity to wield executive authority in furtherance of his or her own policy goals.  Charting a new policy course can often require undoing the regulatory and policy decisions of the previous administration. 

This webinar will discuss the laws and regulations which circumscribe an incoming administration’s ability to undo the actions of its predecessor. We will go on to discuss the role of the Congressional Review Act; the differing means by which regulations, guidance, policy statements, and presidential directives can be changed; and the incoming administration’s ability to halt “midnight regulations” proposed and finalized on the eve of the outgoing administration. This presentation will feature an introduction from the Honorable Lee Terry. He will provide his own unique insights, drawing from his sixteen years serving in the House of Representatives.
