DHEC offers chance to weigh in on regulations


GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina's health and environmental department is offering the public a chance to comment on the agency's regulations.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control on Monday begins a series of public meetings. The first gathering is happening in Greenville. There is another meeting Tuesday in Columbia, and a third discussion is taking place Wednesday in North Charleston.

Last month, Gov. Nikki Haley said South Carolina needs to get rid of government rules that hamper businesses and created an 11-member task force to review regulations and make recommendations on which ones to throw out or alter.

The order also requires her 16 Cabinet agencies to report their suggestions to the task force by mid-May. DHEC says it is taking public comments for consideration before preparing the agency's report.
