The literature is replete with the need for Congress to review regulations. Among the many arguments advanced in support of this idea is that Congress has delegated too much authority to regulatory agencies and the Congress must act to address the shortcomings in regulations promulgated by regulators. Nonetheless it appears that it is unlikely that the Congress will have the resources to review the aforementioned regulations.
Even if the Congress were only to review the most cosmic regulations, at best they are reviewing a very small piece of the regulatory pie. On the other hand if the Congress were to review the legal doctrines inherent in common laws they would then be addressing policies which cut across a wide range of agencies and issues.
