Hogan creates business-led panel to review all regulations

Hogan creates business-led panel to review all regulations

Printer-friendly version

The group included no representatives of labor, environmental organizations or nonprofits — groups that typically seek a role in how regulations are written and enforced. Aides to the governor said more people might be added.

Hogan said the commission would scrutinize a wide swath of rules — dealing with such areas as the environment, transportation, health, labor standards, occupational licensing, banking and finance, land use and insurance. He identified excessive regulation as one of the three "deadly self-inflicted wounds" holding back business in Maryland. (The others, he said, are high taxes and an anti-business attitude.)

Henry Bogdan, public policy director for Maryland Nonprofits, said he was concerned by what he considers a lack of diversity on the panel.

"Someone should be at the table to speak for the reasons those regulations were put there in the first place," he said.
