One way to curb the growing size of government is to grow the size of government:
State Rep. Glen Casada and state Sen. Jack Johnson, both Franklin Republicans, have filed a bill that would create an Office of the Repealer, whose job would be to identify potentially unnecessary rules and regulations. The repealer would offer recommendations to the governor, the state legislature and the secretary of state.
“We’re using bureaucracy to cut bureaucracy,” Casada said. “We’re using government against itself.”
