MADISON, WI  (WSAU)  -  During the State of the State Address Tuesday evening, Governor Scott Walker announced the release of the 2013 Wisconsin Regulatory Review Report. Last year, Governor Walker called for state agencies to work with the Small Business Regulatory Review Board to identify unnecessary, obsolete, and burdensome regulations.

Walker says, “We can continue to improve Wisconsin’s regulatory climate by ensuring regulations are science-based and predictable,” and added, “Providing certainty, specifically related to state regulations, will go a long way to help the private sector create jobs.”

Along with the review, results of a survey of Wisconsin employers were released. Thousands of employers were contacted through 43 business organizations. Roughly half of the responding employers have between 2 and 25 employees. 72 percent said regulations cost more than the benefits they produce. 70 percent said regulation imposes a significant cost on their businesses.
