[r68] House Republicans aim to stop burdensome regulations in 2014
Start Date: 1/10/2014 All Day
End Date: 1/10/2014
Entry Description

STATEHOUSE – Recently, Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) was joined by fellow House Republicans for the unveiling of their 2014 Legislative Agenda.  Titled “Indiana: Working on Progress”, the agenda focuses on five key concepts, which will make Indiana a stronger state. State Representative Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) is going to be leading the charge for one of the bullet items of the agenda by working to stop burdensome regulations.

“Since 1976, the Indiana Code has almost doubled in size. Certain regulations can be costly, outdated and tremendously complex, so I am pleased that the House Republicans intend to focus this year on increasing government efficiency by removing burdensome regulations as well as cutting the red tape for small businesses in our communities,” said Rep. McMillin.

According to the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Ten Thousand Commandments 2013, the cost of complying with federal regulations is estimated at an incredible $1.8T. Additionally, a recent poll conducted by the National Association of Manufacturers and the National Federation of Independent Businesses claimed that 55 percent of business owners say they would not start a business today given the current environment and what they know now about the process.

“Every year we meet to enact new laws – but this session one of our focal points will be removing outdated laws that increase the cost and complexity of both government and business,” said Speaker Bosma. “Reducing the size and scope of government is necessary for the efficient delivery of government services and more importantly the effective function of the free market.”

The House Republicans intend to repeal unnecessary and outdated regulations and cut red tape for small businesses by introducing legislation this session that combines various government reduction ideas together from legislators, the governor and the public. Rep. McMillin is working on one portion of that initiative which is intended to repeal any duplicative and unnecessary language found in the Title 9 section of the Indiana Code which is regulation pertaining to the Bureau of Motor Vehicle.

“After reviewing Title 9 as part of Indiana’s Criminal Code rewrite, I noticed many areas containing duplicate and unnecessary language,” said Rep. McMillin. “I intend to author a bill this year that will eliminate those needless regulations in order to save Hoosiers both time and money.”

In addition to working to stop burdensome regulations, the House Republicans’ Legislative Agenda included the following items: preparing kids for their careers, connecting crossroads to communities, equipping our workforce and cutting taxes.
