Public asked for thoughts on state rules

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The public is being asked for feedback on which state rules and regulations need to be refined or thrown out.

Rep. Dan LeMahieu of Cascade announced the effort on Monday. The Republican is leading the state Assembly's review of state rules, which is also a priority of Gov. Scott Walker this year.

LeMahieu says all 1,768 chapters of the state's administrative code are being reviewed. That code consists of rules used by state agencies to enforce laws passed by the Legislature.

Walker has called for a review of any rules or regulations that make it harder to do business in the state. A task force he created last week released a report identifying hundreds of possible changes, now LeMahieu is asking for public feedback.
