This past year’s Federal Register reached a record-breaking 75,606 pages. The economic weight of these regulations will exceed $860 billion. Clearly, regulatory reform could take us a long way toward economic recovery. Eliminating inefficient rules, making regulatory costs transparent, and giving Congress control over and responsibility for the regulatory state are just a few of the options that will ease the economic burden of regulation and help ensure that regulatory benefits outweigh costs. Come hear the experts explain these and other options as they discuss the status and the future of the regulatory state.
