So we know the problems, decades of overly-detailed red tape has tied the hands of America’s entrepreneurs. The removal of all regulations, of course, is neither feasible nor wise. What’s needed is a re-codification, a spring-cleaning of government — not to deregulate — but to radically simplify regulation so our public goals have a chance at being reasonably effective. Here’s how we begin to slash away at the jungle:
Reform Occupational Licensing
Workers that have little to no impact on public health and safety should be reclassified to require a simple certification process or no regulation at all. Empower Special Commissions to Simplify Regulations. Regulations of all sorts should be thoroughly reviewed by special, nonpartisan commissions to unleash the power of small businesses while ensuring a safe and fair work environment for all.
Simplify the Tax Code.
