REGELLOFT I OHIO
Gode nyheder fra Ohio, som har indført et regelloft med "1 ind, 2 ud", så de kan gå bugt med den massive regulering i staten.
Det bliver spændende at følge, 1) om de får succes med at nedbringe regelmængden, og 2) hvad det kommer til at betyde for velstanden i staten.
"Ohio is one of the most highly regulated states in America. According to an unofficial count by the Mercatus Center, the state’s administrative code contained 246,852 regulatory restrictions as of 2018—some 100,000 more than the average state. Buried in Ohio’s more than 2,000-page budget is a provision requiring state agencies to develop an inventory of regulatory restrictions. Cataloging these burdens might seem elementary, but governments rarely bother to do it, which is how an agency like the Ohio State Lottery Commission can end up with more than 30,000 individual restrictions. Even when reformers cut obsolete rules, agency regulators continue adding new ones, counteracting the effect. To prevent regulatory creep, lawmakers should place caps on the overall amount of regulation so it can’t grow without limit."
