Federal Regulations Advisor Insight and Commentary on U.S. Government Regulatory Affairs

About

The Federal Regulations Advisor is dedicated to monitoring, reporting, and improving on the state of federal regulatory activity — not just who filed what, but how it all fits together — the regulations, court cases, Congressional actions, leadership movement, and related activity.  The Federal Regulations Advisor seeks to provide public educational information to help ensure that Federal regulations are rational, not arbitrary, capricious, or an abuse of discretion.  The Federal Regulation Advisor monitors activity by the White House, OMB, the agencies, Congress, Congressional Committees and key Members, the Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals, and the U.S. District Courts.  The author and guests bring knowledge and experience to the table and will comment freely (hopefully perceptively) on where Federal rulemaking is headed and how that affects business.
