On June 14, Governor Jack Markell signed Executive Order 36, launching a statewide program to identify and remove regulatory hurdles in state government. Executive Order 36 is a mechanism to review existing regulations and eliminate outdated or inconsistent regulations or regulations that no longer serve their purpose. This agency would like public input on its regulations. After formal comment, the agency will consider the input received and streamline or change regulations accordingly. A report on changes goes to the Governor and to the Delaware General Assembly in June 2012.

As part of the review process, each state agency will hold public hearings and accept written comments and suggestions on its regulations.

The Office of Management and Budget held hearings on the following dates:

Minutes from each of the hearings will be posted shortly.

Comments can also be submitted as part of this process through December 1, either online using the Review of Agency Regulations Commenting Form or by submitting the Printable Comment Form.

The printed form can be mailed to Jessica Eisenbrey, Manager of Media Relations, Office of Management and Budget, 122 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. South, Ste. 301, Dover, DE 19901 or submitted via email to jessica.eisenbrey@state.de.us.
