Arizona State University College of Law
Arizona State Law Journal, Vol. 1985, p. 525, 1985
Executive oversight describes a system of regulatory reform implemented by the executive branch of government. Generally, executive oversight involves monitoring administrative agency rulemaking in order to make the regulatory process more efficient and effective. The goal is to protect society from the harms of overregulation: unnecessary paper work, disincentives to economic expansion, reduced business innovation, and higher costs to businesses, service providers and consumers. The federal government and many state governments involve their executives in oversight of administrative rulemaking. In Arizona, executive oversight is primarily the responsibility, of the Governor's Regulatory Review Council, which Governor Bruce Babbitt created by executive order in 1981.
This article will explore the effectiveness of the Governor's Regulatory Review Council (GRRC) in achieving its objectives to increase the efficacy and efficiency of Arizona's administrative process. The article will describe the establishment, operation, and effect of the GRRC during its first three years, from June, 1981 to June, 1984.
