After three primaries victories last night in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney echoed Common Good's argument that the effectiveness and relevance of government regulations needs frequent review:
"[R]egulations are necessary and critical, but they have to be continuously updated, streamlined, modernizedand regulators have to see their job not just as cracking down on the bad guys but also as protecting economic freedom and promoting enterprise and fostering job creation."
As part of our 2012 Start Over campaign, Common Good is advocating sweeping regulatory reform, offering results-based regulation as an alternative to the status quo of overly rigid, intrusive and complex rules.
