(5 ILCS 80/7) (from Ch. 127, par. 1907)
    Sec. 7. Additional criteria. In determining whether to recommend to the General Assembly under Section 5 the continuation of a regulatory agency or program or any function thereof, the Governor shall also consider the following criteria:
        (1) whether the absence of regulation would
    
significantly harm or endanger the public health, safety or welfare;
        (2) whether there is a reasonable relationship
    
between the exercise of the State's police power and the protection of the public health, safety or welfare;
        (3) whether there is another less restrictive method
    
of regulation available which could adequately protect the public;
        (4) whether the regulation has the effect of directly
    
or indirectly increasing the costs of any goods or services involved, and if so, to what degree;
        (5) whether the increase in cost is more harmful to
    
the public than the harm which could result from the absence of regulation; and
        (6) whether all facets of the regulatory process are
    
designed solely for the purpose of, and have as their primary effect, the protection of the public.
