A new executive order has been signed requiring executive agencies for mandatory reviews in the Code of Regulations.

In January, Governor Greitens signed Executive Order 17-03, which requires revision of regulations under its jurisdiction, and requires state agencies to solicit input from the public and allow them to take action to rescind or amend based on the situation.

In other words, the goals of the new Executive Order are to cut the red tape, encourage innovation, entrepreneurship, and job growth, and remove needless, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome regulations.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is aiming to reduce its regulatory restrictions by one-third.

The Department is currently reviewing its regulations and is seeking feedback through its board, commission, and council meetings through Dec. 15, 2017. A complete list of calendar meetings are available at dnr.mo.gov/calendar/search.do.

Public comments will also be accepted online, by email or by mail through Dec. 15, 2017.
