[OP-ED]: Who’s afraid of the ‘administrative state’?

 03/07/2017 - 15:28

Just what White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon meant when he recently suggested “deconstructing the administrative state” is unclear. To critics, he would gut the whole superstructure of social and environmental safeguards, starting with the Environmental Protection Agency (which, say news reports, may face a staff cut of one-fifth). But regardless of Bannon’s meaning, the relentless growth of the administrative state is a reality that we can’t escape.

It’s time to make the administrative state a mainstream concept, through the creation of a regulatory budget. The point is not to justify the instant repeal of most rules, as Bannon’s critics fear, but to improve understanding and accountability.

[OP-ED]: ¿Quién le teme al ‘estado administrativo’?

 03/07/2017 - 15:25

No está claro lo que quiso decir el estratega en jefe de la Casa Blanca, Stephen Bannon, cuando sugirió recientemente la “deconstrucción del estado administrativo”. Según sus críticos, desmantelaría toda la superestructura de salvaguardas sociales y del medio ambiente, comenzando por la Agencia de Protección del Medio Ambiente (EPA, por sus siglas en inglés, la que, según informes noticiosos, podría enfrentar un recorte de un quinto de su personal).

Ha llegado el momento de que el estado administrativo sea un concepto dominante, mediante la creación de un presupuesto regulatorio. La cuestión no es justificar la revocación instantánea de la mayoría de las reglas, como temen los críticos de Bannon, sino mejorar la comprensión y la responsabilidad.

 In cities like Los Angeles, renters in white communities spend 50 percent of their income on rent — well above the recommended 30 percent, but still far less than renters in Hispanic neighborhoods, who pay a premium of 63 percent.
AL DIA News

Renters living in predominantly Hispanic or black neighborhoods have to spend more of their income on rent than those in white communities. Devoting nearly half of one’s income to rent each month makes economic mobility that much harder as well.
