Report: State Regulatory Openness Scorecard
Our new State Regulatory Openness Scorecard attempts to consolidate and compare the varied state systems for public engagement on administrative issues in an effort to better inform administrative process reform. This report grades all 50 states based on four criteria: ease of submitting comments, transparency and accessibility, uniformity, and regulatory restrictiveness.
Transparency and openness should be a top priority for all governmental institutions. For too long, agencies and bureaucrats have remained veiled from the public. It is time that state legislatures make the low-hanging fruit of administrative process reform a priority and bring the administrative state into the light.
Following the release of this report, we will work closely with our state partners to ensure that our findings are translated into real world reforms. Hopefully, the State Regulatory Openness Scorecard will spark much needed conversation around the issue of regulatory openness.
