Department of Safety and Homeland Security Announces
Public Hearing Schedule for Review of Agency Regulations

On June 14, 2012, Governor Jack Markell signed Executive Order No. 36, which establishes a process for the review of certain regulations by state agencies. The Order requires agencies to solicit public input to identify regulations adopted three years ago or more for possible modification or elimination. Do you have specific ideas about which regulations that should be modified or eliminated? If so, we want to hear from you.

As part of the review process, each state agency will hold public hearings and accept written comments and suggestions on its regulations.

The Department of Safety and Homeland Security will hold a hearing in each county:

  • Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.
    Sussex Central High School, 26026 Patriots Way, Georgetown, DE 19947
