Estimating the Costs of State Regulatory Program and Activities: Possible Approaches, Report No. 98-78, April 1999
Full report in PDF format

  • As directed in proviso language, OPPAGA is proposing methodologies for estimating the cost of state regulation and establishing cost benefit considerations in rulemaking.
  • Conducting a study of the cost of state regulation is feasible but would likely require significant effort and cost. If the Legislature wishes to pursue such a study, it should direct the Governor’s Office to contract with a private consultant with experience and expertise in conducting large-scale surveys and economic analyses.
