Taking on Ambush Elections Rule

From the National Association of Manufacturers:

Senator Enzi and Congressman Gingrey are invoking Congress’ right to review regulations issued by the federal government under the Congressional Review Act. The Act allows Congress to vote up or down on a final rule and is a privileged motion – meaning it cannot be filibustered and only needs a simple majority in each Chamber.

I’m not sure if this sort of a thing is subject to the whim of the Senate Majority Leader, but it would seem to be a fairly powerful tool to check the sort of executive excess we’re seeing, and likely to see more of.
