SBE Council chief economist Ray Keating was interviewed for the story, and said that small business owners have “zeroed in” on tax and regulatory reform, which is providing confidence and hope. He added: “We are expecting good things to happen,” Keating said. “But when will they happen, and when will these policies get implemented?”
