U.S. Rep. John Rose of Cookeville has filed legislation that would expedite challenges to so-called nationwide injunctions. In an op ed in the Gallatin News, the Republican congressman writes that these injunctions are “a harmful trend” that are “unfair” and have a “detrimental effect.” He notes that the administration has had close to 40 nationwide injunctions imposed on its policies since the president took office. The bill, H.R.4219, would allow for direct appeals of nationwide injunctions to the U.S. Supreme Court, skipping the federal circuit courts of appeal.
