New Assembly panel to review environmental regulations

The new Assembly Regulatory Oversight and Gaming Committee will hold their first meeting Monday to review New Jersey’s regulatory environment. The committee chairman, Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Paulsboro) said he panel will hear testimony from invited speakers concerning the state’s regulatory process and problems it presents for New Jersey businesses.

“We know we can do better when it comes to the piles of rules and regulations that our businesses have been buried under over the years,” Burzichelli said. “However well-intentioned these regulations have been, clearly they’re not creating an optimal business environment. We’ve heard this concern from our businesses and we’re going to do something about it.”
