Contact: Ken Pokalsky

Members of the Senate Majority Coalition released the schedule for ten industry-specific public forums on regulatory reform. The forums are part of the coalition’s bipartisan effort to identify and eliminate the most costly government regulations that strangle business and job growth and drive up local taxes.

The forums are being convened by the Administrative Regulations Review Commission and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business. All of the forums will be live streamed at the following web addresses:
