The Regulation Agenda
The National Law Journal
Who needs Congress? Last month, at The National Law Journal's first-ever Regulatory Summit, Washington insiders made it clear: If the House and Senate are unable to overcome partisan gridlock, the president will almost certainly use executive orders and rulemaking at federal agencies to advance his second-term agenda. And clearly that's going to make for an even more active regulatory environment in 2013. The summit, a one-day conference assessing the state of regulation across a wide variety of practice areas, drew lawyers, law firm leaders, government officials and political figures. In this special report, we've distilled their observations at the summit to map out some of the areas that are likely to attract the most regulatory attention in the year ahead. David Brown
