OIRA to Hold Listening Session on Public Participation in the Regulatory Process

The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is hosting a listening session on improving public participation in the development of regulations. The roundtable will include opening remarks from OIRA Administrator Richard Revesz. Agencies including the Department of Labor and Environmental Protection Agency will present on their efforts to expand public participation in the regulatory process as well.

OIRA is interested in the questions posed by the Biden Administration as part of broader efforts to engage the public with the federal regulatory process. The Administration is particularly interested in how intermediaries or agencies can reach small businesses or organizations and if any existing tools could help stakeholders better participate in the process. The roundtable will be held on March 7, 2023, at 3:00pm Eastern time via Zoom. Online registration is required for participation.
