The Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, an independent and nonpartisan research organization dedicated to improving the regulation and transparency of U.S. capital markets, released today a report entitled, “A Balanced Approach to Cost-Benefit Analysis Reform” that sets forth ways to strengthen the cost-benefit analysis requirements applicable to the independent agencies tasked with implementing regulatory reform of the U.S. financial system. The Committee believes that the approach outlined in the report will maximize the economic efficiency of our regulatory system, minimize procedurals burdens on regulators, and help to insulate new rulemakings from judicial challenges.
