Today, the U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee will take up legislation to cut government regulation for small business owners and entrepreneurs.
Writing in The Hill, Small Business and Entrepreneur Council President and CEO Karen Kerrigan explains how the “The Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act” would close loopholes exploited by federal agencies to sidestep actions that shield small businesses from over-regulation.
She said, “…elected officials on both sides of the political aisle constantly pledge to reduce red tape and bring more sense to the federal regulatory system. Backing up those pledges with action is critical to our economy, as small businesses are disproportionately burdened with the higher costs and complexities associated with regulation.”
