This RegulationWriter Alert brings to your attention two timely issues of concern to agency regulation writers. Both of these topics were the subject of recommendations made by the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) in December 2011 and were the subject of a meeting held today sponsored by ACUS and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The first deals with Incorporation by Reference. The second deals with the issue of international regulatory cooperation.
