Gov. Jan Brewer has issued an executive order continuing her regulatory review and moratorium for state agencies.
The current rulemaking review and moratorium is set to expire on Saturday, which is the end of the fiscal year.
Agencies adopt all sorts of regulatory and administrative rules under authority granted by state law. The moratorium impacts what agencies do and don’t do on matters ranging from oversight of K-12 education to environmental protections.
Upon taking office in January 2009, Brewer implemented a rulemaking moratorium that would prevent additional burdens on Arizona’s private sector employers.
The governor’s office says the measure streamlines regulations and promotes job creation and retention.
Brewer’s order announced Tuesday extends the review and moratorium until Dec. 31, 2014.
