WINCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Republican Gov. Chris Sununu headed to a hair salon do to some cutting, but not hair.
Sununu traveled to Cuts on Main salon in Winchester on Thursday to announce that the state will be cutting more than 1,600 regulations agencies heads have identified as duplicative, burdensome or otherwise unnecessary.
Sunnu also issued an executive order laying out a process for further review of regulations. He says too many small businesses have to fight with state government.
“Today's actions are part of my ongoing ‘Cutting Regs and Red Tape’ agenda,” Sununu said. “This is about moving to a culture where our employees, and boards and commissions feel empowered to have a mindset of ‘yes first.’ When it comes to working with state government, far too many small business owners have to fight to get to ‘yes,’ and that’s not right. We need to encourage and support common sense customer service.”
