MI Governor Snyder Makes Changes to Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth (DELEG)

Gov. Snyder’s Executive Orders 2011-4 and 2011-5 reorganized DELEG, changing the name to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (DLRA). Other notable changes include

– Transferring the Bureau of Health Professions, the Bureau of Health Systems and the Controlled Substances Advisory Commission from the Department of Community Health to the DLRA;

– Creating an Office of Regulatory Reinvention tasked with reviewing all existing and proposed rules to ensure economic growth; and
– Creating the MI Administrative Hearing System, which is an independent agency that will centralize the state’s administrative hearings.

Both executive orders are set to go into effect April 24, 2011.
