Event Speakers

Hester Peirce

Former Senior Research Fellow

Please join the Mercatus Center for Regulation University’s 2013 series. Hester Peirce, J.D., senior scholar the Mercatus Center, will discuss resources essential to conducting regulatory oversight.

Several key debates this year will focus on the economic impact of federal regulations. The Mercatus Center at George Mason University is pleased to offer Regulation University, a series of educational programs designed for congressional staff to provide the skills and information essential to regulatory oversight and to understand the legal and institutional framework that produces and supports federal regulation.

First of a two-part program, this presentation will address basic building blocks for conducting regulatory oversight:

• How to find and use information about a new regulatory initiative

• The stages involved in developing and finalizing a federal regulation

• Regulators’ obligations at each stage of the regulatory process

• Analysis tools that regulators should use for making decisions
