Regulatory Reform

Houston's municipal regulatory regime too often stifles and suffocates Houstonians' creative entrepreneurial impulses instead of enabling them to succeed and flourish.

All regulations should be submitted to a cost-benefit analysis complete with economic impact study.

Upon implementation, the most cost-efficient methods of enforcing regulations should be sought.

Still, other regulations questionably encroach upon Houstonians' humanitarian outreach to the hungry and homeless as the municipal bureaucracy treats Good Samaritans like merchants and the needy as customers. Regulations that encumber those seeking to aid the least fortunate among us must be repealed.
