Regulatory Expert Nominated For OIRA Post

            The Washington Post reports that Cass Sunstein, a longtime University of Chicago law professor, and most recently, the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard is expected to be nominated to be the new regulatory czar, as Administrator of the OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs

 

            Professor Sunstein is a prolific author and widely acclaimed administrative law scholar.  He is a proponent of a vigorous OIRA and cost-benefit analysis, but respectful of the limits of cost-benefit analysis.  His 2002 book, Risk and Reason, is one of the leading primers on risk and regulation 

 

            As this office works closely with OIRA and the Federal agencies, we look forward to working with Cass Sunstein.
