President Biden to Nominate ALI Director Revesz to Lead OIRA

On Friday, September 2, President Biden announced his intent to nominate ALI Director Richard L. Revesz for the position of Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) Administrator.

OIRA is a statutory part of the Office of Management and Budget within the Executive Office of the President. OIRA is the central authority for the review of Executive Branch regulations, approval of Government information collections, establishment of Government statistical practices, and coordination of Federal privacy policy. The office is led by the OIRA Administrator, who is appointed by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate.

Revesz is a leading expert on environmental policy and regulation. He is the AnBryce Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus at New York University School of Law. He founded, and has led for more than a decade, the Institute for Policy Integrity, a think tank and advocacy organization that promotes desirable climate change and environmental policies.

“President Biden has made a stellar choice in Ricky to fill the position of OIRA Administrator,” said ALI President David F. Levi. “In addition to deftly leading the Institute’s projects from inception to completion for nearly a decade, he is a brilliant writer and scholar and an expert in regulatory law and policy. We are all wishing him the best as the Senate confirmation process moves forward.”

Revesz was elected to The American Law Institute in 1991 and has served as the Institute’s Director since 2014. He will continue serving as ALI’s Director while he awaits confirmation.
