Governor McCrory Cuts Red Tape
Job Creators Applaud Action
On Friday, August 23, Governor Pat McCrory signed 33 bills into law, including the Regulatory Reform Act (HB 74) . This common sense legislation promotes job creation in North Carolina by cutting burdensome regulations and government red tape.
“For decades, Democrats have stifled small businesses and job creators with undue bureaucratic burden and red tape. We have more than 22,000 rules on the books in state government and this is unacceptable,” said Governor McCrory. “This common sense legislation cuts government red tape, axes overly burdensome regulations, and puts job creation first here in North Carolina. Signing the Regulatory Reform Act into law today is another step toward making North Carolina more friendly to job creators.”
This legislation empowers the McCrory Administration to review, update and repeal outdated and burdensome regulations.
“I am especially pleased this legislation gives job creators the ability to provide a preference to veterans and spouses of disabled veterans for employment,” added McCrory.
