CalChamber Urges Businesses to Help Identify Burdensome Regulations, Submit Comments
(July 27, 2012) The California Chamber of Commerce is urging its members to help identify burdensome regulations and send comments to the White House.
On July 18, the White House opened up its regulatory reform effort to the public, launching a website for tips on how the government can streamline or eliminate regulations.
In 2011, President Barack Obama issued an executive order directing federal agencies to review the effectiveness of their regulations to figure out what is working and what is not, and where appropriate, to streamline or eliminate ineffective, overly burdensome and outdated rules. More than two dozen agencies responded with regulatory reform plans, listing more than 800 initiatives.
The administration is now asking for businesses to send comments identifying burdensome regulations.
