Baden-Württemberg: Reducing bureaucracy: at least double efforts

Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - There is still a lot to do in the southwest in the fight against excessive bureaucracy. In the first four years of the Regulatory Control Council's term of office, citizens, companies and administration were relieved of around 96 million euros, explained Chairwoman Gisela Meister-Scheufelen on Wednesday in Stuttgart. However, the green-black coalition still has to step up its game before the end of the legislative period if it wants to achieve the goals it has set itself. By 2026, at least 200 million euros, but if possible 500 million euros, are to be saved in bureaucracy costs. "Now it's time to implement this with energy," warned Meister-Scheufelen. Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann also said: "We are all aware that there is still a long way to go."

The Green politician has repeatedly stated that reducing bureaucracy is extremely important in order to survive in global competition. The country must speed up processes, otherwise Germany will fall behind as a business location. As an example, Kretschmann repeatedly cites the expansion of renewable energies, which is being slowed down by bureaucratic hurdles. When it comes to reducing bureaucracy, Kretschmann relies on the "master plan for the transformation of administration for the digital age" promised in the coalition agreement. It is not yet clear when that will come. Minister of State Florian Stegmann (Greens) is responsible for reducing bureaucracy in the government.

Meister-Scheufelen explained that the advisory committee with 15 studies and recommendation reports had triggered more dynamics in reducing bureaucracy. 40 of their committee's suggestions have already been implemented over the past four years. Among other things, it was about the change in the state building code and the waste law.
