ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland commission has issued a report and recommendations on regulatory reform.

Gov. Larry Hogan, who formed the panel, announced Thursday his administration will move forward with all 187 recommendations.

The commission’s workgroups examined regulations based on four sets of criteria. They include whether regulations could be streamlined or clarified, modernized, stripped of obsolete references or made to conform with state or federal requirements.

Agencies that took part in the review will file updated regulatory language with a legislative panel in coming weeks.

The Republican governor signed an executive order creating the commission in July 2015. The commission includes 10 members appointed by the governor with experience in various sectors representing regions across the state.
