What Will Regulatory Policy Look Like Under President Biden?

November 10, 2020

The Biden administration’s “first six months to a year will be taking up the issues [such as] figuring out which Trump administration initiatives are going to require significant effort to reverse and putting the effort into those,” said Stuart Shapiro, associate dean of faculty at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University and one of the authors of the report. “The Trump administration has been glaringly weak in its analysis in its regulations and its following of the Administrative Procedure Act. You would expect the Biden administration, which will be populated with professionals who have probably been around the block a couple of times to be much more careful and much more thorough in doing it.” 

He added that the Biden administration will “certainly involve the civil servants more than the Trump administration has.”
