Abstract:     
Do procedural controls placed on the regulatory process allow politicians to control bureaucratic decision-making? I use data on the regulatory process under the Clinton and Bush Administrations to assess the differences between these presidents with distinct ideological regulatory agendas. I find that the number of comments received, the changes made between proposal and finalization of rules, the frequency with which agencies bypass notice and comment and the time to complete a rulemaking did not vary substantially between the two presidencies. This raises questions about the effectiveness of procedural controls on agency decision-making.
