Regulatory Fairness Board to hold hearing in Presque Isle May 10th

PRESQUE ISLE - Maine’s Regulatory Fairness Board will hold a public hearing on May 10th from 12:00pm – 3:00pm in the Alumni Room at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.  The hearing will follow Northern Maine Development Commission’s Affordable Care Act forum being held from 7:30am – 11:00am at the UMPI Campus Center. 

The Regulatory Fairness Board was created in 2003 to hear from businesses owners and managers about specific state rules and regulations that may unreasonably impede business sustainability and growth.  The board is interested in hearing recommendations for regulatory and statutory change that may enhance Maine’s business climate and reduce the regulatory burden on small businesses.  Public comments set the meeting’s agenda and create the Board’s recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature.

The Board is chaired by Secretary of State, Matt Dunlap, and four appointed members who represent the business community.  For more information please contact Peggy Schaffer, Small Business Advocate, Office of the Secretary of State, 626-8410, or on the web at .
