The Competitive Enterprise Institute is hosting a private lunch discussion with Senior Fellow Mario Loyola on how to revive the structural Constitution. Loyola will review the deregulatory agenda of the Trump administration and suggest ways it should go further with strategies to return to the checks and balances the Framers envisioned. He warns of the increasing accumulation of executive power over the last century and explains how it has overtaken functions of Congress and the courts.
Prior to joining CEI, Loyola worked at the White House as associate director for regulatory reform in the Council on Environmental Quality and as presidential speechwriter. He served at the Pentagon as a special assistant to the undersecretary of defense for policy, Capitol Hill as counsel to the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee, and as senior advisor to Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska. He has been a fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, and the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. He has published extensively on a wide range of foreign and domestic policy issues in National Review, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere. He received a B.A. in European History from the University of Wisconsin and J.D. from Washington University School of Law.
