We dive into the legal nature of the regulatory state with Ethan Leib of Fordham Law School. In what sense is the making of regulatory policy, whether on the environment or on net neutrality, a legal process?

We learn about the White House’s influence over rulemaking through OIRA and question how OIRA should function and what legal principles should govern it.
