5/13/2015 - Director of Regulatory Reform Commends East Providence

Erik Godwin, Director of Regulatory Reform at the State House, commended East Providence yesterday on taking the lead in the e-permitting process.  Erik stated that other cities and towns will be following East Providence's lead in the permitting process.  Erik, who works for the Governor, wants to make business easier in Rhode Island and has found that our State is one of the most regulated states in the union and is tangled in "Bureaucratic Oversight".  His mission is to transform the red tape process that Small Business faces and help to streamline the process.  

Great job East Providence on leading the pack in the E-Permitting process!
