End Executive Overreach

April 22, 2016
Press Release

Congressman Doug Lamborn is an original cosponsor of the End Executive Overreach Act. 

This bill would: 

•Defund Any New Executive Orders– Reasserts Congress's power of the purse by eliminating all federal funds, fees, or resources that may be used to implement an executive order from the time of enactment of the bill until the end of the Obama Presidency on January 21, 2017. 

•Suspend Agencies Rule Making Authority– Prevents further burdensome red tape regulations from this Administration by not allowing agencies to finalize any Major Rule or Significant Rule from the time of enactment of the bill until the end of the Obama Presidency on January 21, 2017. 

"We cannot afford to give Barack Obama a free pass for the rest of his presidency. As the clock ticks down on his time in office, the pace of executive orders and new regulations will only increase. I urge the House pass this bill and prevent a tyrannical end to a presidency that has stretched the Constitution to the breaking point."

- Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
