Regulatory Reinvention within the DEQ
When Governor Snyder last year called on his newly-created Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to take a hard look at Michigan's regulatory structure, it started a statewide conversation between regulators and stakeholders.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) was among the top agencies responding to the call for a regulatory reform. Snyder's Executive Order 2011-5 created a 12-member Environmental Advisory Rules Committee, composed of manufacturing representatives, utility representatives, environmental consultants and attorneys, a representative from the environmental community, and the DEQ's Director of Policy and Legislative Affairs.
