Policy Integrity sends Members of Congress a framework for addressing OIRA delays

June 11, 2013

In advance of nomination hearings for OIRA administrator appointee, Howard Shelanski, Policy Integrity sent a one-pager to members of Congress to give them a framework for addressing delays that sometimes occur in the regulatory review process.

The framework attempts to balance the need for thorough, centralized review of regulation, against the very real costs of undue regulatory delays and sets out a few simple steps that could help OIRA reduce its backlog of delayed reviews, prevent future unjustified delays, and explain unavoidable delays to the public.

The one-pager went to members of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee as well as other members who have expressed interest in regulatory review issues.
