Regulatory Governance in the US: Towards a Bipartisan Reform?


Six bipartisan bills on the regulatory system are pending in the US Parliament. Three of the bills (S. 708, S. 1683, S. 1817) focus on evaluating the effects of existing regulations and modifying them as appropriate, and three (S. 1818, S. 1820, S. 1607) focus on enhancing analytical procedures conducted before new regulations are issued.

On September 16th these bills have been debated at the US Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs. Two experts acted as witnesses: Susan Dudley (George Washington University) and Sidney A. Shapiro (Wake Forest University).
