by Christopher J. Walker — Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014@chris_j_walker

The Yale Journal on Regulation started this blog back in September. With the launch of the blog, I started the Administrative Law Bridge Series. Each week I’ve highlighted terrific scholarship in administrative law and regulation to help bridge the gap between theory and practice in the regulatory state. The introduction to the AdLaw Bridge Series […]

FERC and EPA: Better Together? (Part 2)

by Bruce Huber — Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014

This is the second part of a discussion about the relationship between FERC and EPA. In Part 1, I explained that Congress has generally written its environmental statutes without regard for its energy statutes, and vice versa. Recent environmental regulatory activity—in particular, two massive initiatives announced by EPA in 2014—has heightened concerns that EPA and […]

by Bruce Huber — Wednesday, Dec. 24, 2014

I’m exploring a few issues in energy regulation that are likely to attract the attention of the 114th United States Congress. My previous post discussed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s regulation of high-level nuclear waste management; in this post, I want to take a look at the relationship between FERC and EPA and how some recent regulatory […]

Arguments—Good and Bad—Against Antonio Weiss

by Peter Conti-Brown — Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014

There is a largely intramural dispute within the Democratic Party about the wisdom (or not) of appointing Antonio Weiss to a senior position at the Treasury Department. Weiss’s title would be the Under Secretary of the Treasury for Domestic Finance (UDF), but he would effectively occupy the third chair in the Treasury’s C-suite and thus […]

In my last post, I introduced the topic of the strengths and weaknesses of the International Health Regulations (2005) as they have been exposed by the world’s response to the Ebola outbreak generally and by the World Health Organization’s response specifically. In this post I’ll address both a strength and a weakness: Annex 2 to […]
