Our work has made a tangible impact, helping shape important policies at the federal, state, and local levels. Some of our key accomplishments are described below.
Modernizing Regulatory Policy
Guidance on how federal agencies should assess the economic impacts of regulations went unchanged for two decades. Our research and advocacy helped shape a 2023 update, recommending that agencies place greater weight on long-term environmental and health benefits and analyze impacts on different demographic groups. The result could be a new generation of rules with greater benefits for the public.
Successfully Challenging (and Tracking) Deregulation
The Institute for Policy Integrity has filed influential amicus briefs in several critical environmental lawsuits related to Trump administration deregulatory efforts.
Improving the Government’s Valuation of Natural Resources
Policy Integrity’s multi-year effort to improve federal natural resource leasing programs has made a significant impact.
Modernizing Energy Policy in New York State
Our input is helping to improve energy policy decisionmaking in New York State, which has announced ambitious plans to boost clean energy.
Reforming the Federal Petition Process
Individuals can petition federal agencies to issue, amend, or repeal regulations, but agencies lack a uniform process for handling these petitions. Our efforts have helped improve this system.
