White House regulatory affairs administrator Shelanski to present Law School’s Boden Lecture
Howard A. Shelanski will present “Sound policy in the balance: The uncertain future of the regulatory state.”
MILWAUKEE — Howard A. Shelanski, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, will present “Sound policy in the balance: The uncertain future of the regulatory state,” for Marquette Law School’s Boden Lecture on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 4:30 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan Street.
Headlines proclaim runaway growth in federal regulation and increased power in the hands of unaccountable regulatory agencies. Beneath the rhetoric, the changes in the regulatory state are more complex. A closer look reveals sometimes-contradictory forces affecting how Congress, federal agencies and the White House interact today to address the nation’s most pressing public policy challenges. This lecture will discuss these changes and address how the forces leading to them will shape the American regulatory state of the future.
Shelanski was confirmed by the Senate to his current position in June 2013. His past government positions include service as director of the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Economics, senior economist for the president’s Council of Economic Advisers, and chief economist of the Federal Communications Commission. Shelanski is on leave from the law faculty at Georgetown University and previously taught at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his J.D. and Ph.D. in economics from Berkeley and served as a law clerk to Judge Louis H. Pollak of the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, Judge Stephen F. Williams of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and Justice Antonin Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Seating for the general public is at capacity; registration for a waiting list is available online.
