Rejected Workplace Regulations

NPR's Peter Kenyon reports Congressional lawmakers were able to overturn recent Clinton Administration workplace regulations by using a new law called the Congressional Review Act. Members of both parties helped pass the measure five years ago, and it allows lawmakers to reject new federal rules with a simple majority vote. Democrats who voted FOR the Act now regret their support.
