NFIB details proposed revisions to state regulations

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) unveiled proposed revisions to state regulations on Wednesday in over half a dozen key areas affecting commerce, including household and property moving insurance, taxi and limo regulations, workers' compensation, malt/brewed beverage rules, and vehicle and pleasure-craft assembly coating requirements.

The first of these changes would end the requirement that new moving companies or property movers prove a public need for their business; it would require insurance upgrades, however.

Taxi and limo services would no longer be required to conform to existing vehicle-list obligations; the vehicle age limitation would be replaced by a mileage requirement only.

Workers' compensation claims would be processed more efficiently with less paperwork and lower costs for plaintiffs due to upgraded technology.

Breweries would be able to offer on-premises sale and consumption of beer produced on site under changes to the Liquor Code.

Cars and light-duty trucks, along with boats and other recreational crafts, would be subject to regulatory approval, applying to loads of 15 pounds or more of coatings or cleaning solvents containing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Along with these proposed changes, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) released modifications to 10 existing regulations regarding auction regulations.

If approved, the updates would take effect on April 16. The announcement of proposed state changes was accompanied by a list of proposed federal regulations. For more information, go to
