Vote number MA03-H075 Requiring regulatory impact statements for new regulations
on May 5, 2003 regarding bill MGL Chapter 30A
Results:

    Requiring a ‘Regulatory impact statement’ for all new regulations promulgated by state agencies. The statement shall:
  • identify the problem
  • identify expert analysis
  • identify specifically who is affected
  • identify when such regulation becomes effective, and how and when the regulation will be reviewed
  • describe the financial impacts of the regulation, including compliance costs and indirect costs
  • identify the fiscal effect over the first five years; and
  • describe specifically the benefits of the regulation.

    [Would have the effect of making new regulations more difficult for state agencies to implement, in a manner analogous to how environmental impact statements make environmentally degradatory practices more difficult].

    Relevant platform section: PART VIII: ENVIRONMENT, PRESERVATION & SUSTAINABLITY: Environmental Law Enforcement: "We believe it is a basic responsibility of government to ensure that all laws enacted to protect our environment are obeyed and enforced."

Categorized under Veto VIII: Environment

Voting N counts for 1 points on VoteMatch question 0: Part VIII: Environment.
