Regulation Authority :
Purpose and Reason :
The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, in an effort to promote a vigorous and growing economy, to prevent economic stagnation, and to encourage the creation of new job opportunities in order to ameliorate the hazards of unemployment and underemployment, reduce the level of public assistance, increase revenues to the State and its municipalities, and to achieve a stable and diversified economy, has developed an expedited permit review process, as set forth in Rhode Island General Laws, § 42-117-1 et seq., for projects of critical economic concern. The purpose of these rules and regulations is to implement the requirements of Chapter 117, Title 42 of the Rhode Island General Laws to provide a mechanism for business and industry to secure any necessary licenses or permits in an expeditious manner without waiving the lawful conditions of said licenses or permits.
