Russell Frisby Interviewed for Bloomberg BNA Story on Regulatory Conference
Russell Frisby, Jr. is featured in a recent Bloomberg BNA story on the efforts to revive the Administrative Conference of the U.S. (ACUS). The ACUS was first established in 1968 as a way for attorneys to fix administrative processes. But due to a lack of funding the body was disbanded in 1995.
Russell and a group of administrative and regulatory attorneys worked together to re-establish the conference in 2010 primarily to focus on issues of agency rulemaking and presidential review of agency rulemaking through the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Russell serves as the chairman of the ACUS's Committee on Regulation. In total, the ACUS has 40 private sector members, 50 government members, 10 council members and a chairman. The committee's membership is professionally diverse and nonpartisan and its work is making a difference Russell said.
“If you think about it, administrative law touches everyone in this country every day, in some form or another,” Russell is quote in the article as saying. “And the purpose of ACUS was to make recommendations toward the improvement of the administrative process.”
Russell is a partner in the firm's Washington, DC office. His focus is on regulatory and corporate matters affecting entities in the communications, energy and technology areas. He represents clients in a wide variety of proceedings before the Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Energy, state utility commissions and federal courts.
