A new governor is presented with an unprecedented opportunity to repeal an outdated and burdensome regulatory code and replace it with a more streamlined and sensible set of rules. Other states should be paying close attention.
RT @ChristopherA: For years I’ve proposed that rules like laws, regulations & standards should have expiration dates. Logic is that if they don’t serve their purpose sufficiently to be renewed, then they should go. Now the entire Idaho regulatory code has expired: https://t.co/BPsjBrml4J
My understanding of what is actually happening in Idaho is that virtually all the rules are getting reauthorized on an emergency basis, except ones that were redundant or crazily outdated.
I don't think anything particularly interesting is happening there from a libertarian point of view. For example, this article talks about how the oil and gas agency is responding. They are recommending to the governor that about a dozen redundant rules should be dropped out of the 736 chapters of regulation.
