Apollonio receives Best Article prize

Dorie Apollonio, PhD, UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty member and political science and health policy expert, received, with co-authors, the inaugural Best Article prize for 2007-2008 from the journal Regulation & Governance. In their report, the authors test and then counter the widely held expectation that regulators can more effectively target serious violations when they have a broader array of sanctioning options in their enforcement arsenal. The researchers studied the US Federal Election Commission (FEC) during a period when the FEC received an expansion in its sanctioning options. They found that the FEC was not better able to focus on the most serious violations after receiving a broader array of sanctions.
