PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (AP) - A panel looking for ways to cut unnecessary and overly burdensome regulations affecting Maine businesses is holding a public meeting in Presque Isle.
The Regulatory Fairness Board will hold the hearing on Friday at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.
The board is hearing from businesses owners and managers about specific state rules and regulations that may unreasonably impede business sustainability and growth. Public comments set the meeting's agenda and become the board's recommendations to the governor and the Legislature.
The board is chaired by Secretary of State Matt Dunlap and includes four appointed members who represent the business community.
