"The White House has chosen a regulatory review chief who has spent decades analyzing the real-world impacts of executive rulemaking.
Richard Revesz, who was nominated this month to head the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, has published multiple volumes on how the government can measure the costs and benefits of its rulemakings. The New York University law professor and founder of the Institute for Policy Integrity also is an expert on environmental litigation — an important attribute given the role a conservative Supreme Court now plays in shaping regulatory policy.
“There is no one alive who knows more about the regulatory process than Richard Revesz,” said Michael Gerrard, director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University. “He was in many ways the obvious choice for this job.”"
