Republican gubernatorial candidate John Kasich promised what he called "common sense" regulatory reform during a press conference outlining his campaign's second major initiative.
And this means, what... ? Shuffling some organizational charts, maybe?
The only meaningful "regulatory reform" will come when the powers of government are significantly reduced -- at the state as well as at the federal level.
I don't think Mr. Kasich has that any more on his mind than Gov. Strickland does.
If he really wants to do something constructive, he will give us a realistic plan for eliminating the $8 billion budget deficit -- which necessarily will involve a major reduction in the size of state government (assuming that he does not want to raise state taxes to confiscatory levels -- something that usually does not sit well with the GOP).
