The major thrust of the Regulatory-Industrial Complex is to make sure that citizens DO NOT do the Wrong Thing by making it difficult to do business in most States of the USA. There are a plethora of government agencies, with highly compensated government employees and a powerful union to protect their interests. If you want to build a building and open a business, the nanny state ASSUMES that you will do the wrong thing and put roadblocks in your way; thereby discouraging you from pursuing your dreams.
The State of Long Island - The 21st Century State should be in the business of facilitating the development of project by helping people to Do The Right Thing! Instead of Regulatory Agencies we need to foster Assistance Agencies that operate under the assumption that people really do want to do the right thing.
Pursuing this action will significantly reduce taxes and reduce the influence of labor unions and other special interest groups that are strangling development and investment.
