Regulation Impact Statement

Piers Akerman today writes about the strangulation of business by government regulations in New South Wales while Andrew Bolt sees stifling government bureaucracy under Rudd. Heres a suggestion, Have a requirement for a regulation impact statement before the introduction of any new government regulation. Similar to environment impact statements, government departments would need to show the full impact of the new restrictions on business, the environment, families and anything else they may effect. They should be very detailed, hopefully take months to do, with cost borne by the government.

I can't see why we can't fight fire with fire.
