Crowdsourcing has lately been a popular way to gather ideas and information from an array of sources. Now, the White house is taking that avenue to ask citizens to chime in on how to help them overhaul and simplify rules and regulations.
Writing for the OMBlog, Cass Sunstein, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, said the administration wants to hear from the public on which rules should be eliminated, streamlined or made more effective. Citizens are also encouraged to share their insight on how to decrease reporting and paperwork burdens, as well as the best way to cut regulatory costs.
