Congressional Review (Public Law 104-121) is the review that says that Congress can nullify, within 60 days after it was issued through a joint resolution, a federal regulation. The law was passed in the 104th U.S. Congress in 1996.
U.S. President Donald Trump has successfully made use of this rule to roll back Obama-era regulations. Prior to Trump's presidency, the Congressional Review Act had been used only once successfully, sixteen years prior.
