|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Environmental Law and Regulation Review|
|In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution that will direct the Joint State Government Commission to conduct a study to analyze and identify which environmental laws and regulations in this Commonwealth have more stringent standards than what is required by Federal law. The findings will be presented to the General Assembly by November 30, 2016.
While most certainly all of us understand the importance of our environment, this resolution is intended to find balance through practical application of the laws and regulations and at the same time permit economic growth and job creation. Hopefully, this can be a first step in pinpointing current laws and regulations that impact hardworking citizens and businesses and make Pennsylvania more competitive in attracting new businesses.
Please join me in cosponsoring this resolution examining environmental laws and regulations.
Introduced as SR385
