Regulatory Reports

Each year, the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy and the George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center estimate the on-budget costs of regulation by examining the portion of the Budget of the United States devoted to developing and enforcing federal regulations. The time-series data go back to 1960, and offer insights into the growth and changing composition of regulation over the last six decades. This year’s “regulators’ budget” presents the President’s requested budget outlays and staffing in fiscal year (FY) 2019, estimated outlays and staffing for FY 2018, and actual outlays and staffing for the previous 58 years.
