Bush. The reason: They have been around long enough to be immune from the Congressional Review Act (CRA), a law that Republicans passed 20 years ago that gives Congress 60 legislative days to override agencies’ actions without burdening the Senate with the need to round up 60 votes to do so, as is the case with almost all other legislation.
