Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Business Assistance and Regulatory Reform Act. Within one year of the effective date of the amendatory Act, and every 5 years thereafter, requires each State agency to scrutinize its rules, administrative regulations, and permitting processes as they pertain to small businesses in order to identify those rules, regulations, and processes that are unreasonable, unduly burdensome, duplicative, or onerous to small businesses. Provides that each State agency must submit its reports containing the results of its review to the Office of Business Permits and Regulatory Assistance, the Governor, and the General Assembly.
House Floor Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the introduced bill. Makes the following change: limits the definition of "State agencies" to all officers, boards, commissions, and agencies of the executive branch (instead of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches), including all officers, departments, boards, commissions, agencies, institutions, authorities, universities, and bodies politic and corporate thereof.
