Background Information: Science plays a crucial role in the administrative process, but a role that has become controversial.
Background Information: Though independent regulatory agencies are not subject to the benefit-cost analysis requirements of Executive Orders 12866 and 13563, several such agencies undertake benefit-cost analysis in connection with their regulatory activities. For instance, the Federal Communications Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission regularly conduct benefit-cost analysis in their rulemakings.
