Review of Agency Regulations

House Bill 147, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by Governor Markell in 2015 requires executive branch agencies to review their existing regulations to determine whether they should be amended or rescinded.

Do you have specific ideas about which regulations that should be modified or eliminated? If so, we want to hear from you.
