Red Tape Rising: Six Years of Escalating Regulation Under Obama

The major regulations imposed by the Obama Administration now cost Americans more than $80 billion a year – twice as much as the rules issued by the Bush Administration at the six-year mark, according to The Heritage Foundation’s latest Red Tape Rising report. The actual cost of these rules is obscured by the failure of agencies to fully quantify regulatory impacts, which represents major dysfunction in the administrative process.

Join us as for a discussion of the report, the implications of this massive expansion of the administrative state, and the reforms necessary to protect free enterprise and individual liberty.

~ Copies of the report will be available onsite. ~
