Professor Peter Shane pens op-ed in The Regulatory Review discussing President Biden’s initial administrative actions

April 1, 2021 | Media News

As a follow up to an earlier op-ed, Professor Peter Shane recently penned “Shaping Administrative Process and Metrics of Ambition,” for The Regulatory Review.

“President Biden has set forth a progressive policy agenda more reminiscent of Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt or Lyndon B. Johnson than President Obama. His first week’s output amply demonstrated the scope of his ambitions. By their terms, however, President Biden’s actions broke no obvious new ground in the nature or form of presidential authority being asserted. Whether President Biden will remain reliably consistent with earlier presidential norms or exercise more ambitious executive power than those of his pre-Trump predecessors will make for careful study over the next four years.”
