Washington, D.C. – Regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling today in Loper Enterprises v. Raimondo to overturn a decision in Chevron v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) president & CEO Karen Kerrigan issued the following statement:

“Over our 30-year history our organization has witnessed the advancement of massive federal regulatory initiatives that disproportionately burden small businesses with high costs and complex requirements that harm their competitiveness and growth.  Regulatory uncertainty and lack of predictability, depending on the Administration in power, has created significant havoc for businesses when it comes to investment, hiring, expanding and planning.  ‘Deference’ given to federal agencies has been a green light for regulators with an agenda to do as they please. We are pleased that this misuse of power by unelected government officials has been curtailed and there will be greater accountability to voters, and greater certainty for small business owners.”
