Require Evaluation before Implementing Executive Wishlists Act of 2017 or the REVIEW Act of 2017

This bill prohibits a final agency rule from being published or taking effect until the agency submits the rule to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), and the OIRA makes a determination as to whether the rule is a high-impact rule. The bill defines a "high-impact rule" as a rule that may impose an annual cost on the economy of at least $1 billion.

An agency shall postpone the effective date of a high-impact rule until the final disposition of all actions seeking judicial review of the rule.
