imageYesterday Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed Executive Order 71 which requires a jobs impact statement from the relevant departments before new rules and regulations can be implemented.  Governor Branstand said in a statement yesterday, “Executive Order Seventy-One will ensure that state government’s eyes are affixed on job creation, retention and development when issuing rules and regulations,” said Branstad. “This rule making process will assist in our administration’s goal of creating 200,000 new jobs and putting the roughly 106,000 unemployed Iowans back to work.” 

The intent of the order is to identify policies that could hurt job creation or retention before they do so.  Branstad went on to say, “As we travel the state we have heard Iowans voice their concerns over the burdens of bureaucracy that fails to understand the relationship between excessive regulation and job creation,” Branstad added. “Executive Order Seventy-One encourages a job-friendly environment as we build a strong foundation for the future.”
