Karen Tani and Matthew Cortland on Reclaiming Notice and Comment
In this episode, Karen Tani, Professor of Law at the University of California Berkeley School of Law, and Matthew Cortland, a lawyer and writer based in Massachusetts, discuss their work on reclaiming notice and comment and citizen participation in the administrative process. They begin by explaining the source and purpose of notice and comment under the Administrative Procedure Act. They reflect how the notice and comment procedure has been dominated by industry insiders, and explain how people affected by regulations can make their voices heard.
