Georgia Legislature Looks to Cut Red Tape While Presevering Safety of Vulnerable Citizens

In Georgia, it takes more than 1,200 pages to catalog all the rules and regulations surrounding social services to the disabled, elderly and mentally ill. In other states, all those requirements take up as few as 40 pages.
If House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, succeeds, many of those regulations, spread across multiple agencies, could go away.
Ralston last year created the Red Tape Watch initiative with a goal of helping businesses and other organizations perform more efficiently while also protecting the interests of patients, consumers and the environment.
