SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsinites are being asked which state government rules they’d like to throw out or change. A
ssembly Republican Dan LaMahieu of Cascade in Sheboygan County created a task force which identified hundreds of possible changes – and today, he asked for public feedback on that report.
LaMahieu leading an effort in the Assembly to review all one-thousand-768 chapters of the state’s administrative code – to get a close look at the rules that bureaucrats adopt to carry out laws passed by the Legislature.
Republican Governor Scott Walker has called for a review of state rules which made it harder to do business in Wisconsin.
In the last session, majority Republicans gave Walker the authority to reject new rules proposed by agencies. Walker says LaMahieu’s project is one of the governor’s main priorities for the year.
