(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana residents and business owners are being asked for their advice.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence has announced a new state website which allows people to submit suggestions on ways existing state regulations could be simplified or eliminated in order to streamline business.
“Every dollar not spent on regulatory paperwork by Indiana businesses is a dollar they can spend putting Hoosiers to work. With their feedback, Indiana has the potential to be the best place in America to start or grow a business,” the governor said.

Suggestions are filtered through the Indiana Office of Management and Budget. The agency will then suggest changes to the governor and state legislature.
According to the governor’s office, there are over 11,000 pages of state regulations on the books today. On his first day in office in January, Pence signed an executive order calling for a moratorium on new regulations until existing regulations can be reviewed by the OMB. Rules pertaining to emergencies, health, and safety are exempt from the executive order.
