Event Speakers

Jerry Ellig

Research Professor, George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center

The scope and number of regulations continues to grow, but proof that problems are being solved remains elusive. Several reform efforts are focusing on ways to improve economic analysis so that agencies can make better decisions about when and how to use regulation for problem-solving. New research indicates several reforms that could have a positive impact.

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University invites you to join Jerry Ellig for a Regulation University program that examines the impact of pre-rulemaking analysis efforts in place today and the impact similar regulatory reform concepts could have on rulemaking quality in the future.

This program will highlight the key findings from Dr. Ellig’s paper, Regulatory Process, Regulatory Reform, and the Quality of Regulatory Impact Analysis, and provide specific examples of why pre-rulemaking analysis can improve regulatory policy.

Space is limited. Please register online for this event.
