The regulatory state has expanded since the creation of the Administrative Procedure Act in 1946, placing an increasingly untenable burden on American businesses.  The Subcommittee plans to hold a series of hearings throughout the 114th Congress that address issues surrounding the regulatory process: in this hearing, the Subcommittee examined today’s rulemaking processes, and how these processes affect the quality, structure, efficiency, and accountability of agency rulemaking.
