The cornerstone of regulatory reform

Monday, 15 December 2014

This week, The Hill published an opinion editorial by Jerry Ellig and Richard Williams of the Mercatus Center on regulatory reform. The piece emphasized the need for retrospective reviews to create a stronger, more efficient federal regulatory process.

According to the op-ed, “Our current regulatory system continues to produce ineffective and expensive rules, because we’ve failed to tackle the core cause of poor regulations. Our end goal is solving more problems at a lower cost, and this can be achieved through methodical analysis and transparent decision making. With a foundation of statutory analysis standards for all regulators, we can build a better regulatory system.”
