Setting Up a Pro-Work Regulatory Environment

Implement Zero-Based Regulation 

States should require regulations to periodically sunset and require agencies to reevaluate and resubmit those through the rulemaking process. 

Create A Regulatory Safe Harbor

States should allow regulated entities to request advisory opinions from state agencies regarding those regulations, require agencies to respond to those requests, and treat reliance on such advisory opinions as a valid defense in any related enforcement action by the agencies. 

Create a Regulatory Sandbox for Entrepreneurs 

States should create temporary exemptions to regulations so that start-ups can develop new products and services without the risk of fines or penalties.
