SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Additional information about the committee meetings, the nature of the projects and related materials, how to attend (including information about remote access and obtaining special accommodations for persons with disabilities), can be found on the “Research Projects” and “Meetings & Events” sections of the Conference's Web site (www.acus.gov).

Agendas: The committees will meet to consider reports by Conference consultants on current projects and prepare recommendations for consideration by the Assembly.

Committee on Adjudication: The Committee on Adjudication will meet to consider a draft report and recommendations on social security disability adjudication. The report, prepared by Professors Harold Krent and Scott Morris, presents findings and recommendations based on legal and empirical analysis of the Social Security Administration's adjudication of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims.

Committee on Judicial Review: The Committee on Judicial Review will meet to consider a draft report prepared by Leland Beck on the composition and compilation of administrative records prepared by federal agencies for use in informal agency regulatory proceedings and, if agency decisionmaking is challenged, for the purpose of review by federal courts. The committee will also consider draft recommendations based on this report.

Committee on Regulation: The Committee on Regulation will meet to discuss two projects. First, the committee will consider a revised report by Professor Wendy Wagner examining the use of science by administrative agencies, as well as a set of proposed recommendations, based in part on her work, which aim to enhance the transparency and integrity of agencies' scientific factfinding. The committees will also consider a draft report and recommendations related to benefit-cost analysis at independent regulatory agencies. The draft report, prepared by Curtis Copeland, chronicles the work of independent agencies to assess the benefits and costs related to their rulemakings and highlights certain practices related to economic analysis for consideration by these agencies.

Committee on Rulemaking: The Committee on Rulemaking will meet to consider a draft report and recommendations on the policy and legal issues implicated by agency use of social media to support rulemaking. The Conference's consultant for this project is Professor Michael Herz.
