JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri's new Governor Eric Greitens is putting a temporary freeze on new government regulations.
Greitens on Tuesday signed an executive order banning state agencies from creating new regulations through the end of February.
He said in a video announcement first released on Facebook that burdensome regulations hurt businesses.
Our top priority is creating more jobs with higher pay. So we're fighting back against job-killing regulations. pic.twitter.com/8ejOiZpyC4— Eric Greitens (@EricGreitens) January 10, 2017
