Regulatory “reform” bill is “uncommon recklessness”

In case you missed it, the lead editorial in this morning’s edition of Raleigh’s News & Observer  neatly sums up the disastrous 59 page jumble of regulatory changes  signed into law by Gov. McCrory last Friday. After noting that the measure was supposedly about “streamlining” regulatory processes, the editorial says this:
“On signing the bill, the governor repeated the sentiment, saying, ‘This common sense legislation cuts government red tape, axes overly burdensome regulations and puts job creation first here in North Carolina.’
Sounds logical and harmless. Except the bill is not what its title and the governor claim it is. It is illogical and dangerous. It is concessions to developers and polluters crammed into a massive bill that was rushed through the legislature in the crush of closing business.
This bill will ‘streamline’ regulatory process with a sledgehammer and blowtorch.”
