Ensuring Accountable Government Regulation: Lessons Learned, Challenges Ahead
Sponsor
Center for Business Law and Regulation Lecture
SEP 24, 2009
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)

Government grows. It grows as the economy grows; it grows as the economy shrinks; it grows by leaps and bounds in any kind of emergency. Government programs grow when they succeed; often they grow even more when they fail. Compared to government spending, which is tracked and debated through the fiscal budget, government regulatory programs are less transparent and accountable, and often their effects are less well-understood.

The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is charged with overseeing regulatory activity, and understanding regulations’ effects. From its position in the White House Office of Management and Budget, OIRA has reviewed the executive branch’s regulatory, information and statistical policy activities since its establishment in 1981. OIRA’s authorities have grown and changed with different presidencies, but its overarching goal – to evaluate new regulatory and information collection mandates to determine whether they make the public better off – has withstood the test of time. While expressing support for the office’s function, President Obama has indicated that he may modify its responsibilities.

Susan E. Dudley, an expert on government regulation and its effects, will share her insight on how the federal regulatory process does – and does not – operate, how federal regulations proceed through the process of centralized Executive Branch review, and offer her thoughts on how the federal regulatory process may change in the future. Her talk will give lawyers new perspective on the federal regulatory process and its potential effects on private sector economic activity.

Susan E. Dudley served as OIRA Administrator from April 2007 to January 2009, and also on the professional staff in the 1980s.

As the Presidentially-appointed Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget from April 2007 through January 2009, Susan Dudley was responsible for the review of draft executive branch regulations under Executive Order 12866, the collection of federal-government-wide information under the Paperwork Reduction Act, the development and implementation of government-wide policies in the areas of information policy, privacy, and statistical policy, and international regulatory cooperation efforts.

Prior to OIRA, Ms. Dudley directed the Regulatory Studies Program at the non-profit Mercatus Center at George Mason University, where she also taught courses on regulation. Earlier in her career, Ms. Dudley served as an economist at OIRA, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. She was also a consultant to government and private clients at Economists Incorporated. She holds a Master of Science degree from the Sloan School of Management at MIT and a Bachelor of Science degree (summa cum laude) in Resource Economics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
