RTP's Free Lunch Podcast
About This Show
In the ultra-complex, interconnected, and breakneck speed digital age in which we live, government must issue and enforce regulations to protect public health and safety. However, despite the best of intentions, government regulation can fail, can stifle innovation, can foreclose opportunity, and can harm the most vulnerable among us. It is for precisely these reasons, that we must be diligent in reviewing how our policies either succeed or fail us, and think about how we might improve them. The goal of the Regulatory Transparency Project is to engage in exactly that sort of examination.

Regulatory Scorecard: A Conversation with Administrator Neomi Rao
In 2017, the U.S. experienced a dramatic shift in regulatory policy at the federal level. This shift is attributable to a new presidential administration that has made regulatory reform a priority. This priority is evidenced by numerous regulatory initiatives including Executive Order 13771 that directs agencies, among other things, to repeal two regulations for every new regulation promulgated. The Administration recently reported that it had far exceeded this goal by instead, repealing twenty-two regulations for every new regulation created. However, debate remains over how the new administration's regulatory efforts, in its totality, should be scored thus far. We are pleased to have OIRA Administrator Neomi Rao as our Free Lunch podcast guest to share her perspective on that question.
