Maine business rules to be aired at public meeting

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — Regulations that are believed to impede business growth will be the topic at a public meeting in Portland.

The Maine Regulatory Fairness Board is inviting public testimony on regulatory and statutory issues that impact Maine businesses, at its meeting on Friday at the Portland library.

The board is holding hearings across the state to invite testimony that highlights regulations in need of a closer look or changes.

The Legislature last session passed a regulatory reform law aimed at reducing red tape and unreasonable regulations, but the effort continues to enhance Maine's business climate.

The Board is chaired by Secretary of State Charlie Summers and has four members who are, or have been, business owners or operators.
