Harrisburg, PA – Some House Republican lawmakers are hoping to rein in the state government’s regulatory overreach.

The regulatory reform package was introduced Tuesday in Harrisburg. The bills are based on information gathered in the House State Government Committee’s Regulatory Overreach Report, which included findings from a series of public hearings held across the state last year that included testimony from various employers, organizations and experts on state regulatory policy.

Read the full statement at the House GOP website.

The report called for reforms to Pennsylvania’s restrictive regulatory system that Republican lawmakers say is credited with holding back business development, limiting job creation and crippling economic growth.

To go into effect, the bill package would still have to be passed by the State House and Senate.

Listen to thoughts on the bill from Rep. Cris Dush, from Jefferson and Indiana Counties.
