(c) Delete obsolete or unnecessary rules;
(d) Delete rules that are redundant of statutes;
(e) Seek to improve efficiency, reduce paperwork, or decrease costs to government and the private sector; and

(2) Beginning October 1, 1997, and by October 1 of every other year thereafter, the head of each agency shall file a report with the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, with a copy to each appropriate standing committee of the Legislature, which certifies that the agency has complied with the requirements of this subsection. The report must specify any changes made to its rules as a result of the review and, when appropriate, recommend statutory changes that will promote efficiency, reduce paperwork, or decrease costs to government and the private sector.
