Gov. Rick Scott has long talked about the need to cut regulations but has previously declined to name specific regulations he finds overly burdensome.

He gives an example in a recent video interview with The Wall Street Journal. Asked to name areas of state regulations that need to be scaled back, Scott singles outgrowth management.

โ€œThe biggest is how much the state should be involved in regulating the growth in communities when you already have a county doing it or a city doing it,โ€ he says.

Earlier this week, Scott hinted at plans to โ€œrealignโ€ the Department of Community Affairs, which his transition team recommended consolidating with other departments into a new Department of Growth Leadership.
