ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The team in charge of the No MO Red Tape Project provided an update Thursday morning in St. Louis for the work done on the project so far.

Earlier this year, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens launched the No MO Red Tape Project with the goal of identifying and eliminating unneeded and expensive regulations on businesses.

The term "red tape" is used to describe regulations that are placed on businesses, which the project team says makes doing business in Missouri more difficult and more expensive. There are more than 113,000 regulations in Missouri state law.

Deputy Counsel to the Governor Justin Smith, who also represents the team in charge of the No MO Red Tape Project, provided an update on the progress they have made so far.

The presentation is part of a series of policy forums the Show-Me Institute is hosting to provide updates on the project. The forums are free and open to the public.
