The Ethical Regulator and Specter of Regulatory Capture
In the world of utility regulation, regulators and counsel must navigate traditional ethical issues, but also must be mindful of and guard against potential regulatory capture. Regulatory capture is a governmental failure when a regulator charged with acting in the public interest, acts in ways that benefit the industry it is supposed to be regulating, rather than the public.
The program will be led by Idaho Deputy Attorney General Brandon Karpen. He will discuss the theory of regulatory capture, real world examples across regulated industries, and explore examples in the utility industry. He will further discuss strategies identifying, and preventing capture, and promoting the public interest.
Will be applying for 1.0 ethics CLE in Idaho.
