On November 30, the Administrative Conference of the United States and the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings hosted a public forum to explore how new technologies can promote more effective public participation and greater efficiency in the rulemaking process. Chairman Paul Verkuil provided introductory remarks and Cass Sunstein, the senior White House official on regulatory review, explained the administration’s commitment to e-rulemaking. Darrell West, vice president and director of Governance Studies, moderated the discussion.

Senior state and federal officials, leading academics and other experts reviewed progress in meeting the challenges that have arisen in the implementation of electronic rulemaking. Sally Katzen, who chaired the Committee on the State and Future of Federal e-Rulemaking, outlined how technology can enhance agency expertise and consistency in making regulations.
