Idaho Gov. Brad Little says he's cut or simplified 75% of Idaho's administrative rules and made Idaho the least-regulated state in the U.S. Little said Wednesday that he's eliminated more than 30,000 restrictions and some 1,800 pages of regulations this year. State officials say they base the state's least-regulated status on information collected by George Mason University. The Republican governor had sweeping authority this year to eliminate thousands of rules after state lawmakers fought over the administrative rules process and failed to renew them before adjourning in April. Little says the cuts to regulations won't make Idahoans less safe.
