Congress should repeal the regulatory excess of the Obama administration

It is here Congress must step in. Under existing law, Congress can disapprove any regulation. This system is nuts as it makes Congressional will subordinate to the actions of federal bureaucrats.

But repealing these regulations is only the first step. The real objective should be to amend the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act to require any regulation produced in regards to those laws receive positive Congressional assent. Non-controversial regulations will breeze through Congress. Regulations classifying your backyard mud puddles as “waters of the United States,” not so much.
The problem will be dealing the obstruction from Democrats in the Senate.  I think the way to persuade them is to make it clear that Trump appointees will be writing regulations now that they may not like either.
