|On February 5, 2014, the EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE) and the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) announced (79 FR 6899 – 6900) that they had developed a draft “analytic blueprint” of materials on the technical merits and challenges of using economy-wide models to evaluate the social costs, benefits and economic impacts associated with the EPA's air regulations. |
The EPA has requested that the SAB provide review of the EPA’s modeling and ability to measure full regulatory impacts and to make recommendations on the use of economy-wide modeling frameworks to characterize the social costs, benefits, and economic impacts of air regulations with the aim of improving benefit-cost and economic impact analyses used to inform decision-making at the agency. As a first step, the EPA has asked the SAB to provide feedback on its draft charge questions and analytic blueprint.
