PRESIDENT NAMES LEWIS TO CHAIR ADMINISTRATIVE CONFERENCE
President Clinton today announced his intention to nominate Ronald B. Lewis to be the Chair of the Administrative Conference of the United States.
Lewis is a partner in the law firm of Caplin & Drysdale, which he first joined in 1969. From 1979-80, he served as Deputy Advisor to President Carter for Regulatory Policies. During that time, he worked to make regulatory policies more efficient and less expensive, and had principal responsibility within the White House for tracking such deregulation efforts as the Motor Carrier Act of 1980. He served as a member of the Administrative Council of the U.S. from 1980-81.
Prior to joining Caplin & Drysdale, Lewis spent three years at the Department of Justice, where he served as an attorney on the policy planning staff, and as a special assistant to the Assistant Attorney General for antitrust.
Lewis, 53, holds both a B.A. and LL.B. from Harvard University. He and his wife, Anne McCutcheon Lewis, live in Washington, DC and have two children.
