Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after President Trump announced a new initiative on regulatory innovation involving state and local leaders.
“I would like to thank President Trump for moving forward on this important initiative. It’s great to hear that our chief executive wants to address the problems often associated with overreaching regulations across all levels of government.
“In Wisconsin, we eliminated unnecessary and burdensome state regulations that stood in the way of economic growth and established new oversight measures in the rule making process. Our efforts are paying off for the state by saving tax dollars, ensuring an ongoing review of the administrative code and allowing for more transparency of costly regulations before they go into place.
“I look forward to having Wisconsin elected leaders partner with the Trump Administration in streamlining regulations, aligning state and federal requirements, and reforming occupational licensing.”
