From the GW Regulatory Resources Center:
Revising Regulatory Review: Expert Insights on the Biden Administration’s Guidelines for Regulatory Analysis
Tue, 9 May, 2023 10:30am – 3:00pm
Please join the GW Regulatory Studies Center and the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis for a timely discussion of recent changes to regulatory practices and analysis.
In April, the White House released much-anticipated revisions to federal regulatory practices, including a new Executive Order 14094 on “Modernizing Regulatory Review,” draft revisions to OMB Circular A-4 governing regulatory impact analysis, and draft guidance on meetings with entities outside of the executive branch. The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is working to implement these changes, which comprise the most significant regulatory policy initiatives of the Biden administration and raise interesting benefit-cost analysis issues, including the appropriate discount rate, who has standing in a benefit-cost analysis, and how distributional impacts should be measured.
At this forum, OIRA Administrator Richard Revesz (invited) will discuss these changes with a panel of former OIRA administrators who served in the Clinton, Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations. Following that discussion, a panel of experts experienced in regulatory impact analysis at the federal level will explore in more depth the draft changes to Circular A-4.
