S.C. Task Force hearing comments Tuesday about excessive red tape
Those with ideas for streamlining the state’s bureaucracy can drop by the State’s Regulatory Task Force meeting Tuesday from noon to 2 p.m. in North Charleston City Hall.
Gov. Nikki Haley created the group earlier this year to review and recommend changes to the state’s regulations.
It’s being chaired by Mount Pleasant businessman Mark Lutz, who said it’s a great opportunity for businesses to reduce their red tape.
But Lutz told East Cooper Republicans Monday that the task force’s work will only be as good as the input it receives. “If we don’t hear from you and your friends about problems with a regulation, we can’t fix it.”
Lutz said the group will look at the state departments of Health and Environment Control, Transportation, Revenue and Labor, Licensing and Regulation, among others.
Comments also may be emailed to: GovRegTaskForce@sccommerce.com. Those sending emails are asked to including their name, their company’s name and contact information, as well as the specific statute, rule or regulation they’re concerned about.
