It is a rare opportunity indeed when businessmen and women are legitimately asked to comment on the impact that government regulations has on their business, but that opportunity exists now thanks to Governor Charlie Baker and his Regulation Review initiative.  Baker, who just completed his first year in office as the state’s CEO, ordered the review last year via an Executive Order.  Following up on that order, the Executive Office of Administration and Finance created an online Regulatory Review Portal through which individuals and business interests can directly comment on the full regulatory system.  In addition, the portal allows for a search by subject as well as numeric citation.  Whether the initiative leads to a streamlining of the regulatory maze remains to be seen, but it’s a start!
