LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A new state report says Michigan regulators should increase safety inspection fees for ski resorts and carnivals rides while dropping oversight of 18 occupations and eliminating nine occupational boards.
The Office of Regulatory Reinvention report obtained in advance by The Associated Press says fees should be raised for licensed professions and activities for which current fees aren't covering the state's costs.
It doesn't suggest specific amounts. Lawmakers would have to pass any fee increases.
The 110-page report was to be released later Monday.
The report recommends deregulating occupations ranging from dietitians to acupuncturists, auctioneers, foresters, landscape architects and speech pathologists. Those jobs represent about 17 percent of occupations regulated by the state.
Oversight would continue for around 1 million licensed professionals, including health care workers, barbers, cosmetologists and funeral directors.
