Reflections on the Regulatory Process


Watch the live-stream here.

You are invited to attend a briefing, hosted by the Coalition for Sensible Safeguards and Public Citizen, which will address a variety of regulatory challenges facing the current administration and future administrations. The briefing will address the hurdles agencies must overcome to protect American workers, families and consumers; the causes and consequences of regulatory delay; lessons learned during the Obama administration; and regulatory challenges the next administration is likely to face.

U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) will deliver opening remarks, and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will conclude the event. The briefing will include two panels that feature former administration officials, academic experts on administrative law and leading public policy advocates who have fought to strengthen the regulatory process.

At the event, Public Citizen will announce original research findings on the extent of regulatory delay, based on comprehensive data from the past 20 years of rulemaking. Among the major findings, the research shows that the largest and most protective rules experience the most delay and that public health and safety agencies experience greater delays than other agencies.

WHEN: 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, June 28

WHERE: Room 485, Russell Senate Office Building, 2 Constitution Ave. NE, Washington, D.C.
