The administrative state has existed since the nation’s earliest days. Until the New Deal, it did not directly regulate the business and personal affairs of most Americans. Beginning in the 1930s and continuing until today, the federal Leviathan has become a powerful and intrusive feature in American society. That was particularly true during the eight years of the Obama Administration as federal agencies took it upon themselves to govern almost every aspect of modern life, including who may use what bathrooms. The expanded reach of the so-called Fourth Branch of Government into American life has generated criticism and prompted some to question the legitimacy of the administrative state. Join us as OIRA Administrator Neomi Rao explains the Trump Administration’s vision for the future of the administrative state.
