With the extension of codecision the European Parliament and the Council have pushed for a more rapid adoption of legislative acts. However, this increase in efficiency comes at a political price. It reduces opportunities for the Parliament to be perceived as an arena for political arbitrage. It may also change the playing field for different categories of stakeholders in normatively undesirable ways. This article addresses two widespread claims: business interests may be better equipped to influence the outcome of early adoptions than other groups; and the European Parliament’s policy-making powers may not profit from early adoptions despite presumed gains in efficiency. The results of our case study provide some support for both: business stakeholders seem to adapt better to the more secluded setting; and the European Parliament is not achieving its initial goals in this early second-reading adoption.
