NEW: Gov. Nikki Haley issues SC regulatory reform order

Gov. Nikki Haley will issue an executive order Tuesday requiring state agencies review and eliminate any regulations they think impede business growth in South Carolina.

Gov. Nikki Haley issued an executive order Tuesday requiring state agencies review and eliminate any regulations they think impede business growth in South Carolina.

Her order also created a task force composed mostly of business leaders to also look for regulations to eliminate. A final report is due Nov. 15, according the governor’s office.

Agencies must report their findings to the task force by May 15.

Haley made both announcements during a cabinet meeting.

Haley promised regulatory reform in her State of the State speech a month ago, announcing plans to form the task force and agencies to review their rules.

Before cabinet directors, she asked them to look at cutting costly regulations but not to sacrifice the safety of citizens.
