Comments to Agencies on Retrospective Review

March 31, 2011

In addition to submissions to the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, Policy Integrity also sent our recommendations on developing policies for conducting retrospective reviews to fourteen additional agencies this week, including the Department of the Interior (DOI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Small Business Administration (SBA), and the State Department.

The comments are in response to requests from the agencies for guidance on adhering to President Obama’s Executive Order 13,563, which requires them to periodically review existing significant regulations. Included are suggestions for improving the quality of the regulatory review process to increase effectiveness and efficiency in government action.
