Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey touts the launch of the new Office of the Repealer in a press release, saying:
"I'm proud to serve in a legislature where success is measured not by how many new laws are passed, but by the amount of burdensome rules and regulations that are repealed and abolished. The Office of the Repealer is an outstanding tool in the fight against bureaucratic red tape and big government."
State Rep. Glen Casada says "While Washington is out of control, Tennessee is getting it right. We understand that the fewer laws we have on the books that regulate the lives of Tennesseans, the better."
According to Tennessee logic and math, you can reduce the size of government by creating a new bureaucracy.
Wonder if they will start by repealing state environmental regulations? Make your suggestions here.
The "Office of the Repealer" idea apparently originated with Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas. Looks like Illinois is also considering it.
