DOVER – The Delaware Office of Management and Budget (OMB) today issued a reminder to Delaware business owners and other interested stakeholders that it is still accepting public comment under Governor Markell’s Executive Order 36, which requires agencies to identify unnecessary or overly burdensome regulations to be streamlined or eliminated.
OMB announced that public comments will be accepted online and by mail through December 1. Individuals who wish to submit comments may do so using the agency’s online submission form. Comments may also be mailed to Office of Management and Budget, c/o Jessica Eisenbrey, 122 William Penn Street, Ste. 301, Dover, DE 19901.
Executive Order 36 is a mechanism for agencies to review existing regulations and eliminate outdated or inconsistent regulations or ones that no longer serve their purpose. OMB held public hearings in each county on September 27, October 4 and October 11.
After December 1, the agency will consider the input received and streamline or change regulations accordingly. In June 2013, the Governor’s Office will submit a report to the General Assembly detailing the regulatory changes made by each agency.
