Working Group on Statutory Drafting: Clarifying Statutory Access to Judicial Review of Agency Action

ACUS Recommendation 2021-5Clarifying Statutory Access to Judicial Review of Agency Action, identified various ways in which statutes governing judicial review of federal agency rules and adjudicative orders create unnecessary obstacles to or overly complicate the process of judicial review. It recommended that Congress enact a new general judicial review statute that includes provisions to eliminate those obstacles and complications, with the goals of promoting efficiency and fairness and reducing unnecessary litigation. It also recommended that ACUS’s Office of the Chairman prepare and submit to Congress a proposed general judicial review statute for consideration that would provide for the statutory changes identified in the Recommendation. The Office of the Chairman has convened this Working Group to prepare the proposed statute, which the Office of the Chairman will submit to the appropriate committees in Congress.
