On September 13, the Gray Center hosted a conference on The Future of White House Regulatory Oversight and Cost-Benefit Analysis. At the conference, a number of scholars presented new research on cost-benefit analysis and the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, or “OIRA.” All of the papers are available on the Gray Center’s web site. And the conference was keynoted by the White House’s Acting Administrator for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Paul Ray.

Our first panel focused on OIRA. We discussed two new papers: Former OIRA Administrator Susan Dudley’s paper, titled “OIRA Past and Present,” and a paper by Rutgers University Professor Stuart Shapiro, titled “OIRA’s Dual Role and the Future of Cost Benefit Analysis.” They were joined in the discussion by two former OIRA Administrators: the Hudson Institute’s Chris DeMuth, and NYU’s Sally Katzen. Both DeMuth and Katzen are affiliated with the Gray Center, as Distinguished Senior Fellows. The discussion was moderated by the Gray Center’s Director, Adam White. The papers and video are available at https://administrativestate.gmu.edu/events/the-future-of-white-house-regulatory-oversight-and-cost-benefit-analysis/.

Featuring Susan Dudley, Stuart Shapiro, Chris DeMuth, Sally Katzen, and Adam White.
