Here's some examples ;
required continous operating exhaust fans in remodels and new construction - homeowners have no say.
Required temp limiting water faucets (water will not get warm enough, but gee...it's safer) - again the homeowners have no say
Water restricting valves at faucets and spigots, again homeowners get no say
These are just a few examples of ridiculous regs, well intended but not well thought out, we have gov intruding more and more into our lives and as a result we lose simple liberties...oh...like CHOICE.
Anyone with a tad of common sense knows that these expenses are a complete waste, as people end up running faucets or spigots much longer because they stream is too weak, the toilet has to be flushed more than once, the bath is never hot enough, so you have to keep wasting water to keep it tepid...the fan gets replaced after inspector checks it off so you don't have to hear it all the time and stop concerning yourself because that is power being wasted.
You asked "what is too much regulation" It's ALWAYS too much regulation when your choices are removed by the government.
Regulations instituted through fear mongering over faux global warming is at the least foolish beyond any reason...and in my common sense mind, (without a doubt whatsoever)criminal in it's institution because of what it has done to contractors and consumers.

It's a luxury no one else anywhere can even purchase for themselves if they wanted to. Public employees shouldn't get special benefits that are basically unavailable to everyone else in society. This is part of why Obamacare created the Cadillac Tax. It was to get state and local governments to abandon these grandfathered ultra-platinum health benefits that they make taxpayers pay for.But then somebody tells them that there's a union over there where they still get "Cadillac" benefits...as if that is now some unheard of fucking luxury that nobody anywhere really deserves...
No one's pissed at the people who happen to belong to unions. Often enough they are coerced into being in the union in the first place. The anger is at everyone who defends and attempts to rationalize the existence of unions at all.And now you're pissed off at the few remaining people whose unions have somehow survived,

When you broadly state that we have too much government regulation, are you generally opposed to government or are there specific kinds of government jurisdictions that you wish to eliminate?
I suppose each one of us do not disapprove or are supportive of some government regulations and we’re opposed to some others. But it’s difficult to arrive at a consensus as to what we should retain or eliminate, or modify. If we choose to modify, can we agree upon those modifications?
Among government jurisdictions are health, safety, civil law, criminal law, and many other laws and regulations that are referred to within the preamble of the United States’ constitution as “to promote the general welfare”.
Your complaint of “Too much regulation” is meaningless until you specifically identify the specific classifications or individual regulations you wish to eliminate or modify or replace and explicitly describe your reasoning, including that of any changes you’re advocating.

I will say that when I build something out in the middle of nowhere, nobody gives a shot.
If its my house, I should be able to by-pass certain codes, in the interest of cost effectiveness. Its my place - I should be able to build what I want.
On the otherhand, would you like to live next to some clown who built an exceedingly unsafe dwelling that might fall into your home?
