The Invitation for Public Involvement
A Note to Our Congressional Readership

Unlike some discipline specific symposia sponsored by particular professions, this discussion forum is not focused on the views of a homogenous population; instead its population base consists of a cohort of multidisciplinary individuals residing in different countries throughout the world which reflects a wide range of cultural priorities. The aforementioned observation is highlighted because we are fully aware of  both the fact  that more than one third of the House and more than half the Senate have law degrees (CRS) and of the unique consideration that members  might accord to a multidisciplinary record if they participate in the  Congressional Review of Judge-Made Common Law

To this end, in the not too distant past the Journal  for Benefit-Cost Analysis sponsored a multidisciplinary review of a pending policy issue which might serve as a guide to those preparing comments for this proceeding.

An Open Invitation to Published Scholars

Re: The Multidisciplinary Management of the Administrative State

The purpose of this communique is to invite you to share your thoughts on how we might expand the modus operandi for the management of the administrative state from one that is based primarily on legal analyses to one that is based on multidisciplinary analyses.

All comments we receive are being made available for continuous viewing by the public by posting them on a new website

I have devoted the majority of my 50+ year career to improving the regulatory process, including my work in establishing the regulatory review office, OIRA, in the White House Office of Management and Budget which focuses on the Presidential review of regulations.

It is time to establish a complementary process for the Congressional review of judge-made laws using a multidisciplinary review team as set forth in “The Congressional Review of Judge-Made Common Law” at

We are contacting you because of our review of one or more of your publications. To this end we would appreciate your posting your views on the aforementioned process for reviewing judge-made laws by posting your views on this page
