Gov. Hogan Establishes Regulatory Reform Commission

Date: August 04, 2015

For Maryland small business owners frustrated with what seem like mounting regulations, there is good news. Gov. Larry Hogan established in July a new regulatory reform commission to lessen the complexity and burden of needless red tape.

The commission’s 10 members and two co-chairmen will review the state’s regulatory climate and identify burdens to the state’s business environment, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

“For years, over-burdensome and out of control regulations were making it impossible for businesses to stay in Maryland,” Hogan said. “We promised a top to bottom review of all state regulations and policies to make sure that Maryland could once again operate under a fair, accountable and balanced regulatory climate. This Commission will look to see what regulations have outlived their usefulness, have failed to accomplish their objectives, or are so poorly written, implemented, or interpreted that they cause much more harm than good.”

The commission will hold public hearings across the state, covering these industries:

  • transportation

  • environment and land use

  • healthcare

  • business occupations and licensing

  • banking and financial services

  • capital formation insurance

  • labor and employment

  • agriculture, and tourism
