US goes back to basics of (drastic) RR

A major discussion has been going in past weeks in Washington about the nature and extent of a new wave of regulatory reforms. There is too much information and opinion online for this blog to summarize. But it is by our standards a major event, and interested experts are invited to check it out, for potential new insights. An apparently objective introduction is provided by an online article in the Washington Post.
What is most striking for us observers is the intensity of the attack on regulation, which makes the UK deregulation unit look moderate.
For a detailed presentation of the draft Regulatory Accountability Act, one of the new texts under consideration, see an article from the Heritage Foundation.
