Sen. Brackett updates District 23 on legislative session

Thursday, February 7, 2019

Dear Friends,

One of Governor Little’s initiatives is to reduce state regulatory burdens on Idaho’s citizens and businesses. The past week in the Senate Transportation Committee we rejected 22 existing rules and replaced them with 8 new rules. The old rules had just evolved over time adding new rules from time to time. Thanks to the hard work of the Idaho Transportation Department, those 22 rules, which covered permitting, were evaluated to see if they were needed and, in many cases, consolidated. The result was eliminating 22 old rules and consolidating/replacing them with 8 new rules. I am pleased to have played a small part in reducing the size of government and making our rules that are necessary more easily understood.
