The range and quantity of government activity has grown exponentially over the course of this century. In response, an "institutional Presidency" has developed. Today, the President is at the locus of a network of relationships designed to increase his capacity to influence the flow of events. This paper examines a small sample of those relationships: the President's relationship with the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), a division of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that reviews regulations.
