The commission's Executive Director, Stuart Drown, says the report tries to avoid the political debate over regulatory reform. Its focus instead:
Drown: "Not to have more regulation or less regulation but better regulation."
And a vital step to doing that, Drown says, is to make sure state agencies that create the regulations pick the ones that strike an economic balancing act:
Drown: "The goal here is to come up with the alternative that's the most cost-effective way of implementing the policy goals of the legislature."
So the Commission's report suggests ways to conduct effective economic impact assessments on regulations that would impose an annual cost of at least $25 million. It also recommends oversight guidelines and setting a sunset date for each regulation.
