I’m writing to express my strong support of Ganesh Sitaraman for Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the OMB. I urge you to nominate him swiftly and to push for his quick confirmation.The Administrator of OIRA is a critically-important position, given that OIRA reviews regulations across an astonishing range of issues, including transportation, environmental, labor, and health and safety. Over the past year, however, this role has gone unfilled, without even a nominee for the position. While I recognize that the Administrator position is a demanding one, I believe that Ganesh Sitaraman is eminently and uniquely qualified for this https://t.co/z4aJCCdRQd a law professor at Vanderbilt University, Sitaraman teaches and writes about regulation, administrative law, constitutional law, and economic policy. He is a prolific scholar, who has authored or co-authored four books in addition to articles in the Harvard Law Review, Yale Law Journal, Columbia Law Review, and other academic journals. His work is wide-ranging as well—covering administrative law, foreign affairs, trade, antitrust, constitutional history, and many different areas of public policy. His extraordinary ability to understand and analyze issues across such a broad range, and with scholarly depth and insight, uniquely qualify Sitaraman to be Administrator of OIRA, where he will confront a wide range of topics.With less than three years left in your first-term, the work of reviewing agency regulations will only get more demanding. I urge you to move swiftly to nominate Ganesh Sitaraman as OIRA Administrator and to support his quick confirmation. Thanks.
