DRAFT - 2021 HCGA Regulatory Platform

This document includes draft regulatory recommendations for the state in preparation for next year’s proposed agency consolidation. The timeline for consolidation is currently uncertain, but it’s possible that we may see agency consolidation - and new proposed regulations - as soon as the middle of 2021.

Updating our regulatory platform is the first step in a strategy to advocate for reforms that reduce regulatory burden, streamline compliance, and provide a level playing field for small and independent businesses. HCGA staff will work directly with regulators, legislators, and Governor’s Office to ensure that Humboldt’s priorities are included in the consolidated agency and its updated regulations.

This document is a draft and will ultimately be submitted for approval by Policy Committee in early December. Please feel free to comment on this document until Friday, November 27. The document is still a work in progress and will continue to be updated until then.

Regulatory agencies are also requesting direct feedback on a survey open until November 17. That survey is available here. Feel free to use (or copy) parts of this document to help submit comments before then.

Also feel free to contact me directly ross@hcga.co with any questions or comments.
