Unchecked Power: How to Bring Accountability to the Regulatory State
Location: United States
- July 22, 2014
The unprecedented growth in the scope and burden of the administrative state has highlighted the immediate need for strong regulatory reform. During this private telebriefing, participants will hear from Reason Foundation Trustee and Business Advisory Council Chairman Ambassador C. Boyden Gray.
Ambassador C. Boyden Gray is the former U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. and Special Envoy to the E.U. for Eurasian Energy Diplomacy (2008 - 2009). In the Reagan and Bush Administrations, he was a part of the team that developed the landmark executive order on regulatory reform. He was White House Counsel under Bush and also Chairman of the ABA's Administrative Law Section. While the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union, he saw firsthand the importance of regulatory reform in the international context.
This briefing will focus on proposed and potential legislative reforms of the regulatory state as well as the need to reform the permitting process, which currently stifles development and the extraction of America's abundant natural resources.
Following Amb. Gray's address, there will be a brief Q&A.

Once it grows to a certain size, so-called democratic government begins to soften and weaken the people.
