How is scientific information used in framing perceptions of risk in regulation? Regulators use scientific and technical information to judge risk and thereby influence the content and extent of regulatory action.

On November 17, 2009 the Marshall Institute hosted a dialogue to discuss how those judgments about risk are translated into regulatory decisions and the consequences, intended or unintended, of those outcomes.

Introductory Remarks – Representative Phil Gingrey (Georgia)

SPEAKERS:

  • The Honorable Susan Dudley, Director of the GW Regulatory Studies Center and Research Professor in the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy & Public Administration
  • Dr. Richard Belzer, President of Regulatory Checkbook and Managing Editor, Neutral Source (www.neutralsource.org)
