PROTECTING SMALL BUSINESS, PROMOTING ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Kerrigan in THE HILL – A Small Business Executive Order: Justification for Regulation

By at 17 January, 2017, 5:44 pm

In a January 17 Op-ed in The Hill, SBE Council president & CEO Karen Kerrigan writes about the need for meaningful small business input on federal regulations –  at the earliest stage of the federal rulemaking process.  As noted by Kerrigan in the piece:

My small business members are dazed by the onslaught of regulations that continue to pour out of federal government agencies. The most common questions they pose about the explosion in new regulations are: “What is the actual problem they are trying to fix?” and “Where is the market broken?” or “Why the hell are they doing this?”

Fair questions. And these are the type of queries all federal departments and agencies need to answer, and receive public and small business feedback on, prior to the development of most rule making.

She covers some of the solutions that are being considered, or have been acted upon by the House, and how President Donald Trump can make his mark in a future executive order on regulation.
