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 Administration of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Paul Ray.
Our second panel focused on the place of cost-benefit analysis in judicial review of agency action. We discussed two new papers: “Codifying the Cost-Benefit State,” by Brian Mannix and Bridget Dooling; and “The Ascendancy of the Cost-Benefit State,” by Paul Noe. In the discussion, Dooling and Noe were joined by Professor Bill Buzbee and former White House Counsel C. Boyden Gray. The discussion was moderated by Professor Kristin Hickman. The papers and video are available at https://administrativestate.gmu.edu/events/the-future-of-white-house-regulatory-oversight-and-cost-benefit-analysis/.
