ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley wants more than 130 regulatory policies to be repealed or modified.

Last fall, O’Malley asked state agencies to review their regulations to identify measures that could be reformed to grow the
economy and streamline business operations.

The governor’s plan, which was submitted to the Administration, Executive and Legislative Review Committee, requests the repeal of regulations including a prohibition on the commercial harvest of blue crabs on two days in November and a regulation that requires drivers who transport hazardous substances to get a special Maryland certification.

He also suggests eliminating regulations that are obsolete or duplicative, like a ban on smoking in elevators, which is addressed
by the statewide indoor smoking ban.

Some of items in the governor’s proposal also suggest eliminating outdated language.

      Worrying about dumb things instead of getting jobs back .

    What outdated language is he talking about ? Dose he mean English ?

    Push 1 for English ? I’d like to see the whole list. Just another way to divert attention so he can sneak his hand deeper into our pockets.
