Letter to Secretary Azar Applauding HHS Rule to Assess Regulations


“We write to express strong support for the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) November 4, 2020 notice of proposed rulemaking entitled ‘Securing Updated and Necessary Statutory Evaluations,’ and to seek further information about this effort,” wrote Walden, Rodgers, Burgess, and Guthrie.

“HHS regulations have a real-world impact on jobs, the quality of life, and the cost of living of the American people. As a matter of good government, it is important that regulations are monitored to find out if they are actually achieving their projected benefits. The proposed rule would incentivize HHS to conduct retrospective regulatory reviews to ensure regulations are delivering the projected benefits rather than measuring the effectiveness of the implementation of the regulation,” the members added.
