Deep Dive 150 – Regulating Business in the Age of COVID-19
Play • 58 min
COVID-19 has presented unique challenges for state lawmakers as they attempt to address public health and economic concerns. The crisis has also raised significant questions about whether states should reform existing regulatory regimes, and about the propriety of adding further regulatory burdens during an ongoing pandemic.

In this live podcast, Brian Kabateck, Luke Wake, and Clark Neily address vital questions raised by the virus, including how states should balance public health and economic concerns, whether states should change their enforcement priorities during the crisis, and whether this is the right time for states to liberalize economic regulations more generally. The discussion is centered around several proposals from the Regulatory Transparency Project's State & Local Working Group, which recently published a white paper entitled "Ten Reforms to Spur Coronavirus Recovery."

- Brian Kabateck, Founding and Managing Partner, Kabateck LLP
- Luke Wake, Attorney, Pacific Legal Foundation
- [Moderator] Clark Neily, Vice President for Criminal Justice, Cato Institute
