The Committee on Rulemaking will meet to hear two consultants present their outlines and research plans for two new projects. These projects are the Midnight Rules Project, for which Professor Jack Beermann is the consultant, and the Regulatory Analysis Project, for which Curtis Copeland is the consultant. The Midnight Rules project will examine issues raised by rules promulgated near the end of a presidential administration. The Regulatory Analysis project will examine the numerous analyses (e.g., cost-benefit analysis, regulatory flexibility analysis) that agencies are required to prepare when promulgating rules. The Committee will provide feedback to the consultants based on their outlines and research plans.
