Summary:
Examines issues related to Congressional Members efforts to bring lawsuits against the executive branch, including challenges associated with establishing standing under Article III of the Constitution. Summarizes suit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis) challenging OPM rule that provides Members of Congress and Congressional staff with a Federal contribution towards health insurance premiums purchased on certain exchanges, on the grounds that the rule exceeds OPM authority under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and is in contravention of the Affordable Care Act.
