OMB Analytic Tool Reveals Poor Cost-Effectiveness of NHTSA Tire Standards Proposal
OMB, in the President's FY '03 Budget, used a league table to rank the cost-effectiveness of ten health and safety regulations. OMB noted that the tables are "most useful" when based on information about potential or proposed rules. Thus, CRE is undertaking a series of analyses utilizing league tables to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of proposed regulations. CRE's first league table analysis is of NHTSA's proposed tire performance standards for FMVSS No. 139. The analysis found that NHTSA's proposed tests are less cost-effective than any rule included in OMB's league table.
