Professor Steinzor and the Abolition of Centralized Regulatory Review

 Professor Rena Steinzor, a noted administrative law expert, and a member of the influential Center for Progressive Reform has written an article in the forthcoming inaugural issue of  University of Michigan’s Michigan Journal of Environmental and Administrative Law; the article is entitled “The Case for Abolishing Centralized White House Regulatory Review” .

 The editor anticipated such an event some thirty years ago upon his departure from OMB as reported in the article entitled The Twenty Years War  published in the National Journal in 1983 reporting on his note  to the federal regulatory community.

 The editor, and eight consecutive Presidential Administrations,  believes  there is a convincing case for a continuation of centralized regulatory review as set forth in this article in the   American Bar Association – American University Law School  sponsored  Administrative Law Review  and the attendant article in the Environmental Law Institute’s Environmental Forum.  Coincidentally and  collectively these two publications address topics identical to the subject matter of the new journal.

 The author waited fifty years to write the two aforementioned articles; it appears that the timing could not have been better.
