WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds is asking for stories from South Dakota residents about how federal regulations affect day-to-day life in the state.

Rounds announced the initiative on Thursday as a way to give focus to his efforts to curb overregulation from the government.

Rounds says he consistently hears from residents who are dealing with too much bureaucracy. South Dakota’s junior U.S. senator wants to make federal regulations simpler and less onerous.

He says the goal is “to make government more effective, efficient and accountable.”

Elected in 2014, one major focus of Rounds’ Senate campaign was tackling government red tape.
