Haley receives report on regulatory review

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (AP) - A panel reviewing the approximately 3,000 regulations that South Carolina's state agencies use has presented its report to Gov. Nikki Haley.

Haley received the report, which includes an executive summary and 2,000 pages of appendices, on Friday. She told reporters on the Isle of Palms she will spend the weekend plowing through the report of the Regulatory Review Task Force.

Haley created the 11-member group by executive order this year and told the panel to review state regulations to determine which can be tossed out and which need to be changed.

Haley said one thing is clear and that's agency regulations are made much too easily. She would like to see state lawmakers vote on each individual regulation so they have a better idea of what the rules are for.
