Maryland seeks to reform regulatory process

Last year, Gov. Larry Hogan created the Regulatory Reform Commission to look at ways to change state government policies to benefit businesses and contractors that deal with the government. Earlier this month, the commission issued a final report recommending 57 changes to modernize the state’s procurement system, update technology and simplify the bidding process. The report recommends eliminating old laws that have been superseded by new ones, allowing businesses to submit certain applications and other documents online and calls for the state government to institute a new customer service initiative, according to an overview by MarylandReporter.com. Hogan has directed his administration to move forward with making the changes.
