  • CEI LUNCH BRIEFING: The Case Against Carbon Taxes

    Join us for an expert panel discussion on the case against carbon taxes. Debates on Capitol Hill around the Green New Deal have reinvigorated the call for carbon taxes. Proponents of carbon taxes often claim that they offer a free market alternative to more radical environmental policies like the Green New Deal. Our panel will articulate why carbon taxes are not a free market alternative to the Green New Deal, explore the disastrous costs and consequences of this policy suggestion, and caution lawmakers against distorting the climate debate with a flawed response.

    The panel discussion will feature James Lucier's recently published report, The Carbon Tax: Analysis of Six Potential Scenarios. The analysis uses scoring conventions similar to those used by the Congressional Budget Office to model and evaluate the economic impacts of carbon taxes.

  • Demanding that Agencies Comply with the Law: OMB's New Interpretation of the Congressional Review Act

    Congress passed the Congressional Review Act in 1996 to prevent agency rules from going into effect before Congress had the opportunity to expeditiously review and nullify ones that it deemed unwise. None of the three Presidents since then—Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama—used the CRA to rein in the administrative state. President Donald Trump has. In April 2019, the White House Office of Management and Budget issued a memorandum reading the CRA broadly for executive and independent agencies alike. This panel will discuss the potential effect that the OMB Memorandum might have on the regulatory state.
