Structural regulatory reform is the most important issue in 2024 that nobody is talking about. The 188,000-page Code of Federal Regulations costs more than $2 trillion per year, or more than $14,000 per household. Regulatory compliance costs more than food, clothing, and other household expenses.

Join CEI’s Fred L. Smith Fellow in Regulatory Studies, Wayne Crews, and Senior Economist Ryan Young in conversation about how to fix the regulatory state.

In addition to discussing Biden-era themes, such as whole-of-government initiatives, crisis abuse, regulatory dark matter, and enumerated powers, guests will receive a preview of the 2024 edition of Wayne Crews’s annual Ten Thousand Commandments report.

When: 12:30 – 2:00 pm

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Where: Union League Club
