Governor McCrory Signs Job-Promoting Legislation That Cuts Government Red Tape

Governor Pat McCrory signed on Aug. 23 the Regulatory Reform Act (HB 74), common sense legislation that promotes job creation in North Carolina by cutting burdensome regulations and government red tape.

“For decades, Democrats have stifled small businesses and job creators with undue bureaucratic burden and red tape. We have more than 22,000 rules on the books in state government and this is unacceptable,” said McCrory. “This common sense legislation cuts government red tape, axes overly burdensome regulations and puts job creation first here in North Carolina. Signing the Regulatory Reform Act into law today is another step toward making North Carolina more friendly to job creators.”

This legislation empowers the McCrory Administration to review, revise and repeal outdated and burdensome regulations.

“I am especially pleased this legislation gives job creators the ability to provide a preference to veterans and spouses of disabled veterans for employment,” added McCrory.
