Since Congress and President Carter’s regulatory liberalizations of the late 1970s and early 1980s—the abolition of the Civil Aeronautics Board and establishment of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs—each President and Congress, no matter the party in control, has made regulatory oversight a priority.

Nonetheless, the regulatory burden has increased over the years with little relief or fundamental reform. Proposals to modernize the regulatory process are common but face trouble getting traction. Among other options, the Regulatory Accountability Act (S. 951) is one modern vehicle for reform. How does this legislation compare with previous efforts and how will its proposals affect the current regulatory process? Join the Competitive Enterprise Institute for a discussion, with lunch provided.

For purposes of congressional ethics rules, this is a widely attended event.
