Anthony Campau Discusses OIRA Review Framework in Tax Notes
Clark Hill attorney Anthony Campau was recently quoted in Tax Notes. The story, “OMB’s Tax Reg Reviews Dodge Biden’s Regulatory Reckoning,” reports that Biden signed multiple executive actions just hours after taking office on January 20, but none of the orders targeted the tax regulatory review process instituted under the Trump administration and overseen by the Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). However, Biden’s presidential memo, “Modernizing Regulatory Review,” includes directions that could filter down into OIRA’s review of tax regs.
Anthony Campau, Director of Government Regulation and Counsel at Clark Hill, says the OIRA review framework advances uncontroversial good government goals, particularly by emphasizing the role of transparency, analysis, and interagency coordination in regulatory decision-making, making it unlikely that Biden will end OIRA’s tax reg reviews at any point in his administration.
“The new review process is a function of an interagency agreement, not an [executive order]. If the suggestion is that the agreement in some respects flows from an [executive order], I’d say that’s absolutely only a small part of the story.”
