PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - State agencies have identified more than 250 changes to improve Rhode Island’s regulatory system.

The General Assembly called for a four-year regulatory review process. Gov. Lincoln Chafee told agencies to accelerate the process, to make government more efficient and reduce the regulatory impact on small businesses.

The final report was released Tuesday after about a year and a half of work.

The report says agencies identified changes during the review and 70 percent of the reforms are now complete.

Chafee says the effort demonstrates Rhode Island’s commitment to making state government more efficient and reliable for small businesses.

The report is available on the Office of Management and Budget’s website.
