In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our governor suspended 130 regulations to give our small businesses the flexibility to serve customers.
I’m asking you to support HB 158, because it would create a commission to study these suspended regulations and create a bulk recommendation for the regulations that don’t need to go back into effect.
We need economic opportunity in our state, and that’s why we need support for HB 158. It’s time to address the massive growth in our regulatory code to 60,000 restrictions and 4.7 million words, and HB 158 is a great start.
I encourage you to support HB 158 and to cut unnecessary red tape in Montana!
