All regulations that have been promulgated by agencies
should include a provision that they will sunset in five years unless they are
reviewed and specifically reauthorized by the Legislature prior to the
expiration date. All existing regulations should be reviewed on a rotating
basis to determine if they have achieved their intended results and have been
cost-effective. Regulations like wetland rules that impose significant costs on
businesses and residents should receive the highest priority for review. Any regulations
found to be ineffective or not cost-effective should be rescinded.
