Administrative Rules Bill Truly Agreed and Finally Passed
The Missouri legislature today approved SB 469. The bill will now be sent to the Governor for signature.
The bill would require every state agency to review their administrative rules on a schedule. The purpose is to weed out rules that are no longer valid or overlap with other rules, and to be sure citizens have the most current requirements. Currently, many regulations are outdated, and citizens that are misinformed by these outdated rules can make costly mistakes. “The least state agencies can do,” said Ray McCarty, President of Associated Industries of Missouri,”is to provide taxpayers and citizens with correct and reliable rules and regulations.”
Associated Industries of Missouri supported the review of state regulations.
