Parnell OKs regulatory efficiency guidelines

Gov. Sean Parnell on Monday signed Administrative Order (AO) 266 establishing Regulatory Efficiency Guidelines for state agencies. The order is an effort to lower costs, increase efficiency and minimize the burden on Alaskans complying with state regulations. 

The guidelines will be used by state agencies when they review, repeal, amend or adopt state regulations to carry out state law.

 “Alaskans are better served when state regulations are limited in scope, clearly and plainly written, and consistent with the statutes they implement,” Parnell said. “These new guidelines will ensure laws are implemented in the most reasonable and cost-effective manner for Alaskans.”
