Fabulous – An “Office of the Repealer”

When the General Assembly reconvenes shortly, I would urge that both they and the Governor give very serious consideration to implementing this, out of Kansas.

A new “Office of the Repealer” has been created to reduce the number of laws and regulations, and the Repealer is canvassing the state for more cut suggestions.

Those who wonder about the need for this measure here in Rhode Island can click here .

Rhode Island is the third worst state in the nation to do business, according a ranking by Forbes.
The Ocean State earned the 48th spot on the “Best States for Business” ranking …

The addition of a “Repealer” to state government cannot happen overnight, of course. So, in the interim (she observed optimistically), legislators should be encouraged, when filing a bill, to also submit a bill repealing an existing law or making a business regulation less onerous.
Let the repeal of the state’s absurd boiler inspection law be just the start of Rhode Island’s journey towards business friendliness — or, at least for now, the beginning of its trip towards the anonymity offered by a middle-of-the-pack ranking in that very important listing.

Kansas has a rightwing wacko rayzist governor and legislature.
We have all progressives, all the time.

Our assembly would never go for that. It’d take away a little bit of their own power and oversight and give it to a non-elected person or body. No way.
Oh wait. They already do that with the board of regents and the pension review board.

Why would you ever need to repeal a law or regulation? They can just stack on each other indefinitely until the progressive central planners control every aspect of your life.

Gingrich included that in the Contract with America. He didn’t call it the “Repealer”, he wanted to require Congress to spend a day a month (I think that was the interval) repealing unduly burdensome laws and regulations. Particulalrly those regulataions promulgated by various agencies such as the IRS and EPA. These become law without legislative approval.
