On October 17, 2002, the ABA's section of Administrative Law and Legislative Practice held an Administrative Law Conference that included a panel discussion on "Learning to Live With the Data Quality Act." This very balanced panel included proponents of the Act (including CRE's own Jim Tozzi); opponents of the Act; and OMB officials charged with administering the Act. At the time of the panel, no Data Quality Act petitions had yet been filed. Yet, the panel and public comments remarkably predict two of the major issues raised by subsequently filed Data Quality Act Petitions: i) reproducibility of influential scientific information; and ii) application of the Petition process to ongoing public comment proceedings. The panel transcript is a valuable resource in understanding the Data Quality Act and its potential impacts on the administrative process.
