Business group launches battle against federal regulations

August 15th, 2012 in News

A growing number of small businesses want the government - especially the federal government - to stop issuing regulations that do nothing but hurt the business' chances of doing business.

"We have begun a program called "Small Businesses for Sensible Regulations' made up of, right now, nine states (to) bring the whole issue of business regulatory climate to the forefront," said Brad Jones, Missouri director of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

The nine states are Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada and Missouri.
