Governor’s Push to Streamline State Government Continues

Amy Richards\TSM

The Governor said this year he has asked agencies, boards and commissions to streamline rules. This follows the merger of the Department of Workforce Services and Department of Employment in 2011 and consolidation of technology services in 2012.

The Governor said the goal of the rules project is to reduce rules both in number and length by 1/3. This benchmark recognizes some agencies, boards and commissions will not be able to achieve that goal, while others may surpass it. the governor says State agencies, boards and commissions develop rules pursuant to enabling legislation. They are intended to clarify requirements for the benefit of individuals, businesses and government.

Governor Mead said the Legislature, Secretary of State’s Office, and the Attorney General’s Office are all actively working on this streamlined rules project with the Governor’s Office. the governor said Ssme state agencies have already reduced the number of rules they have on the books this year and others have proposed reductions or will soon.
