20 Years of Executive Order 12866 Open Access

Last week marked the 20th anniversary of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, which was signed by President Clinton on September 30, 1993 and published in the Federal Register on October 4, 1993. EO 12866 built on previous regulatory oversight executive orders in establishing the process through which federal regulatory actions are reviewed by the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) to ensure the consistency of agency actions with Presidential priorities, to coordinate regulatory policy between agencies, and to provide a dispassionate and analytical “second opinion” on agency actions.
