Regulation

Committee:

This Administrative Conference project considers covered agencies' activities under the Sunshine Act and identifies various "best practices" that promote transparency while minimizing compliance burdens.

Committee:

Periodic review of existing federal regulations is essential to a well-functioning regulatory system.  Such reviews, among other things, are an essential tool for ensuring that existing regulations meet regulatory objectives without imposing undue burdens, that they have not been rendered obsolete by changing technology or market conditions, and that they do not require modification to address newly-identified regulatory gaps.
