President Biden has made regulation a priority during his first year in office. On Day One, he carried through on campaign promises and signed several executive orders, memorandums and directives charging agencies to reverse much of his predecessor’s actions and to “modernize” regulatory review. Since then, he has also aggressively pursued new regulatory priorities, including those related to racial equity, climate change, employment, and the pandemic.
But as he approaches his first anniversary in office, he has neglected an important element that is critical to his success in this regard—he has not appointed someone whose mission is to oversee his ambitious regulatory agenda.
