The Department is committed to pursuing regulatory activity that is clear, concise, and imposes the least possible burden on individuals, businesses, and state and local governments. To this end, the Department’s Task Force is working diligently to make changes that will promote innovation and remove unnecessary hindrances on restrictive government permitting and approval requirements.
