Rule Review: Do It Right

Last week, the Commission voted against conducting a substantive review of our existing rules. I joined with my colleague Commissioner Northup in offering an alternative to the proposed plan, one that sought to focus on excessively burdensome and unnecessary rules. Our colleagues opposed such a meaningful review—their opposition was not in the spirit of President Obama’s executive order on retrospective review. It is disappointing that my colleagues voted to keep the scope of our rule review narrow, and focus on such “housekeeping” items as the toy caps rule and the animal testing policy.

Our alternative rule review plan contained many of the recommendations I’ve called for in earlier posts as well as in testimony before Congressional committees. You can see some of these suggestions here and here.
