Mission

The Governor’s Office of Regulatory Reform (GORR) improves the State’s regulatory process by assisting State agencies in the development of regulations that are well conceived, understandable, and based upon adequate input from the parties affected. GORR also helps businesses start or expand their operations by expediting permit approvals and facilitating communication between regulators and affected parties. In 2008, an estimated 50,000 applications for new and expanding businesses were submitted electronically through the Online Permit and Licensing System (OPAL).

Budget Highlights

The Executive Budget recommends $3 million All Funds ($3 million General Fund) and a staffing level of 23 FTEs for the Governor's Office of Regulatory Reform to support the Office’s regulatory review and business permits assistance activities. Funding is reduced by $.7 million from the 2008-09 budget to reflect a restructuring of the agency to focus more directly on its core mission. This restructuring will reduce staffing levels by 13 FTEs from the 2008-09 budget.
