Domestic Public Policy

Retrospective Analysis of Federal Environmental Regulation II

Grant Year: 2022

Richard Morgenstern and Arthur Fraas will direct the research program of a policy lab focused on assessing the economic costs and benefits of regulations. They will commission retrospective analyses of existing regulations covering air and water quality, develop guidelines for how best to undertake retrospective analyses, and work with a bipartisan group of lawmakers who are developing legislation to make retrospective analysis a part of the regulation policy process. The policy lab’s findings will appear in a series of reports, papers, and briefings for policymakers.
