GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP/WLTX) - South Carolina's health and environmental department is offering the public a chance to comment on the agency's regulations.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control on Monday begins a series of public meetings. The first gathering is happening in Greenville. There is another meeting Tuesday in Columbia, and a third discussion is taking place Wednesday in North Charleston.

Tuesday's public meeting in Columbia will be:
12:00 - 3:00 PM
Peeples Auditorium
3rd Floor
2600 Bull St.
Columbia, South Carolina 29201

Wednesday in North Charleston:
12:00 - 3:00 PM
North Charleston City Council Chambers
2500 City Hall Lane
North Charleston, South Carolina 29406

Last month, Gov. Nikki Haley said South Carolina needs to get rid of government rules that hamper businesses and created an 11-member task force to review regulations and make recommendations on which ones to throw out or alter.

The order also requires her 16 Cabinet agencies to report their suggestions to the task force by mid-May. DHEC says it is taking public comments for consideration before preparing the agency's report.
