President Trump on Friday reinforced how serious he is about reforming the regulatory state by nominating administrative law professor and Federalist Society member Neomi Rao to head the Office of Information & Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). The next OIRA Administrator, or “Regulatory Czar,” will oversee President Trump’s order that agencies eliminate two regulations for every new one, among other things. This will require principled and pragmatic leadership, and Rao, a respected legal scholar with experience in all three branches of government, has the experience, intellect, and character needed for the job.

The Wall Street Journal has more of my analysis of the nomination.
