Del. governor orders agency review of regulations
DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware Gov. Jack Markell is directing state agencies to review their regulations to ensure that the state government is not imposing unnecessary burdens on businesses and residents.
Markell signed an executive order Thursday aimed at reducing impediments to economic growth and improving the efficiency of state government.
The order requires executive branch agencies to solicit and review public input on regulations that are at least three years old to determine whether they should be revised or eliminated. Agencies will begin their initial three-month public input periods in a staggered process starting July 1 and ending next March.
The governor will report to the legislature a year from now to detail which regulations have been changed or eliminated.
