How OIRA’s Circular A-4 Guidance Can Be Used in Comments and Included in Final Regulations

Responsive Government Defending Safeguards Public Participation

The Center for Progressive Reform, Coalition for Sensible Safeguards, and Institute for Policy Integrity hosted a webinar exploring how the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs’ (OIRA) new Circular A-4 Guidance can be used effectively in comments and included in final regulations. Among other issues, they discussed how new guidance on discounting — and EPA’s updated and compatible social cost of carbon valuations — can affect pending regulations. They familiarized stakeholders with these key tools for engaging in the regulatory process.

The webinar was held on February 28, 2024.
