Full Document Available in PDF

Thank you, Chairwoman Miller, Ranking Member Lynch, and Members of the Subcommittee, for giving me the opportunity to comment on congressional regulatory reform initiatives.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) is a free-market public policy group focusing on regulatory issues. My testimony is largely based on two CEI reports: the just-published 2005 edition of economist Wayne Crews’ annual survey of federal regulatory trends, called Ten Thousand Commandments; and my March 2005 report, Reviving Regulatory Reform: Options for the President and Congress. I am pleased to provide copies of both reports for the press and Members of the Subcommittee.
