Federal agencies would be required to select the most cost-effective regulatory option in rulemaking. Risk assessments would be included in the final rulemaking record which would be subject to judicial review.

As for existing rules advisory committees of public and private representatives would select those for agency review. Public comment would be used to determine if these regulations should be amended or repealed. c
