POLITICS: Gov. Nikki Haley to get final regulatory review report Friday

Gov. Nikki Haley will receive a final report from her Regulator Review Task Force and talk to the S.C. Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Summit on Friday at Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms.

Haley established the task force this year to streamline state regulations to promote business growth in the state.

Task force chairman Mark Lutz, vice president of a multimedia company and a member of the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control board, said when the group first met: "We are not here to eliminate regulations. Regulations are important. We need to help protect the citizens. We need to help protect the environment."
