Senior Environmental Analyst Russ Harding was interviewed on Michigan Public Radio today about the state’s regulatory regime and its negative impact on business.

Harding, who recently authored “Environmental Regulation in Michigan: A Blueprint for Reform,” said he gets calls weekly from business owners who have “given up” on Michigan.

“When you do everything the state requires you to do, you’re not done,” Harding said about Michigan’s permitting structure. “They leave it open. And they can come back any time in the future and say, ‘Well, we found new standards,’ or ‘We’ve got new scientific information. You’ve got to go back and do more.’ From a business community’s perspective, that’s a no-go.”
