No More Red Tape - Public Hearing

Tuesday, October 24 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am • Organized By Missouri Department of Economic Development - North Region
3003 Frederick Ave, St. Joseph, MO 64506


In response to Governor Eric Greitens’ call for state government to review the more than 113,000 regulatory requirements that are currently on state books, the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) is leading the charge to cut red tape that impedes businesses from growing and creating jobs. DED is reaching out to business organizations across the state to learn how government can be less burdensome.

To make it easier for the public to review and comment, DED created a webpage that includes the divisions’ regulations, links to the current rules in the Code of State Regulations and an online comment tab that simplifies the review process for interested citizens.

DED will also hold public events throughout the state to provide businesses the opportunity to comment in person. The rules review webpage is at:

Sections of the Missouri Code of State Regulations deal with these Department of Economic Development divisions, which are all under review:  Economic Development Programs, Division of Business and Community Services, Missouri Housing Development Commission, Division of Workforce Development, the Small Business Regulatory Board, Division of Energy, and the Public Service Commission.

DED works to create an environment that encourages economic growth by supporting Missouri’s businesses and diverse industries, strengthening our communities, developing a talented and skilled workforce, and maintaining a high quality of life.
