Here’s the press release on the terrific Penn Program on Regulation event today at noon, which will be live-streamed:
The Penn Program on Regulation will hold a panel discussion, The Next Five Years in Regulation: An Election Year Conversation, on April 5, 2016 at noon at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. The session will focus on the implications of the upcoming election for regulation.
“Few domestic issues are as vital to the nation’s future,” said Cary Coglianese, director of the Penn Program on Regulation, who will moderate the panel. “On the presidential campaign trail today, we see quite different visions of that future—both within and across the political parties.”
The panel will feature a discussion from a diverse group of experts and advocates:
- Sam Batkins, Director of Regulatory Policy, American Action Forum
- Andy Green, Managing Director of Economic Policy, Center for American Progress
- Paul Noe, Vice President for Public Policy, American Forest and Paper Association
- Rena Steinzor, Professor of Law, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
This event is being held on the fifth anniversary of the launch of RegBlog.org, the Penn Program on Regulation’s daily online publication. In the past five years, RegBlog has established itself as a premier online source of regulatory news, analysis, and opinion.
“RegBlog aims to make complex regulatory issues accessible and tangible, both to experts and the public alike,” said Coglianese.
Produced by students at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, RegBlog has featured numerous contributors, including heads of regulatory agencies, judges, practitioners, and prominent academics.
The April 5, 2016 panel discussion, organized by the Penn Program on Regulation and RegBlog, is co-sponsored by the Penn Law chapters of the Federalist Society and the American Constitution Society.
