AEI-Brookings Joint Center Working Paper No. 00-01
This testimony reviews research from the Joint Center on regulatory impact analyses and provides five recommendations for improving the regulatory process. These recommendations include: making regulatory impact analyses publicly available on the Internet; providing a regulatory impact summary table for each regulatory impact analysis that includes information on costs, benefits, technical information, and whether the regulation is likely to pass a benefit-cost test; establishing an agency or office outside the executive branch to assess independently existing and proposed federal rules' requiring that the head of a regulatory agency balance the benefits and costs of a proposed regulation; and requiring that all regulatory agencies adhere to established principles of economic analysis when doing a regulatory impact analysis.
