(Bismarck, ND) -- Governor Doug Burgum is considering dozens of proposals from North Dakotans for cutting back on inefficient government practices.

The governor's office has been collecting suggests from agencies and the public on ways to cut red tape since August.

Some complaints included requests to simplify the process for obtaining a title for an untitled vehicle and the requirements for running childcare centers.

In addition to accepting public input, the working group is collaborating across all cabinet agencies and participating non-cabinet agencies to review regulations, restrictions, requirements, red tape and policy that has become outdated, burdensome and inefficient.

The working group will review recommendations for changes to the North Dakota Century Code and state Administrative Code and prepare a comprehensive Red Tape Reduction Act for consideration by the 68th Legislative Assembly in 2023.

Burgum has extended the deadline for suggestions to October 10th. For more details, click here.
