AUGUSTA, Maine — An advisory panel meeting in Augusta was told that state government’s attitude toward business is unfriendly.

Business representatives also told the Maine Regulatory Fairness Board on Monday that the governor who is to be elected next year should create an office of regulatory streamlining to make operations less cumbersome for companies operating in the state.

The Kennebec Journal in Augusta quotes David Clough of the National Federation of Independent Businesses as saying that many business owners are afraid to speak out, especially those who are having trouble with a regulatory agency.

Chris Hall of the Portland Regional Chamber said employers feel a hostile regulatory environment.
