After an absence of over 14 years, Congress has re-established the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS). The Conference was created in 1968 as an independent agency of the federal government, for the purpose of developing recommendations to improve the fairness and effectiveness of the rulemaking, adjudication, licensing, and investigative functions of federal agency programs.
Kelley Drye of counsel Jodie Bernstein has been named a public member of ACUS. She joins other Conference members including federal officials from Executive Branch departments and agencies, as well as independent regulatory boards and commissions, private lawyers, university professors, and other experts in administrative law and government.
