University Chair in Law Professor Sidney Shapiro was recently quoted in the Feb. 27th issue of the Bloomberg BNA Occupational Safety & Health Reporter article, “Chamber Unleashes Barrage of Comments Critical of OSHA’s Proposed Silica Rule.”  Shapiro was quoted on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s criticism of the recently proposed OSHA silica rule.

“Ultimately, it doesn’t matter to OSHA if the Chamber filed 11 separate submissions or packaged all of its commentary in one submission, Wake Forest University Law professor Sidney Shapiro told Bloomberg BNA Feb. 25. Either way, the agency is legally required to respond to all comments,” Shapiro stated.

Professor Shapiro is one of the country’s leading experts in administrative procedure and regulatory policy.  He has written 10 books, contributed chapters to seven additional books, authored or coauthored more than 55 articles, and is currently working on a book on administrative expertise.  Shapiro has been a consultant to government agencies and has testified before Congress on regulatory subjects. He is the Vice-President of the Center for Progressive Reform, a nonprofit research and educational organization of university-affiliated academics.  Before coming to Wake Forest, he taught at the University of Kansas where he was a distinguished professor. Prior to teaching, Shapiro was a trial attorney with the Federal Trade Commission and Deputy Legal Counsel of the Secretary’s Review Panel at the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
