Expert Panel to Examine the Mission and Future of the New Administrative Conference of the United States
WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 24, 2010 — What are the principal challenges to the administrative state in 2010 and beyond? How will they be addressed? These questions and others will be on the agenda when the American Bar Association Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice convenes “ACUS 2.0 – The Reincarnation of the Administrative Conference of the United States” on Nov. 29 at the George Washington University City View Room.
The original ACUS was established in 1968 to provide nonpartisan recommendations to Congress, many of which were adopted in whole or part. After being defunded 15 years ago, the ACUS was re-established by President Obama earlier this year. A public-private partnership, the conference is charged with finding ways to make government work more effectively and efficiently.
