Domestic Public Policy

Advancing Retrospective Analysis of Federal Environmental Regulation

Grant Year: 2017

Richard Morgenstern and Arthur Fraas will lead a research agenda to improve the capacity of the policy community to measure the costs and benefits of regulations. They will engage with staff from federal agencies and Congress to identify the key barriers to making greater use of evidence to measure the cost and benefits of existing regulations, review and synthesize findings from existing retrospective regulatory analyses, and develop a list of regulations that would be good candidates for independent retrospective analyses. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports, papers, and briefings for policymakers.
