Governor Bevin knows that for businesses to thrive in Kentucky, the Commonwealth must cut through the red tape of excessive and complex regulatory burdens that continue to be a hardship for many small business owners. While these types of regulations can be effective and even protect public interests, they can also stifle economic growth, impose high costs on businesses and impede private sector investment.
Gov. Bevin is committed to restraining runaway government and re-empowering citizens. With your help, his Red Tape Reduction Initiative will identify costly, ineffective or outdated regulations and conduct a thorough review. The end goal is to allow businesses to operate in a modernized regulatory system that provides them with the flexibility they need to serve their customers.
If you are aware of a regulation that you believe to be outdated, unnecessary or overly complex, let us know by filling out this form. All suggestions will be reviewed and evaluated.
