8.3.21 – WAPT — 

The Mississippi Secretary of State is helping curb regulations on behalf of business owners with the Tackle the Tape Initiative.

Secretary of State Michael Watson said the initiative aims to cut regulations that are anti-competitive and do not substantially further the safety and well-being of citizens.

Watson said the initiative will also increase economic opportunities for all Mississippians.

“Basically, people can go on our website and send in any regulation statutes, or rules that are harmful for businesses, and once we see those, we can help advocate on their behalf to whatever agency it is, or to the legislature to help cut statutes, or cut laws here in Mississippi,” Watson said.

Watson said his office sent a letter to all 29 occupational licensing boards encouraging them to partner up for the initiative.
