NFIB hosted a meeting with U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.) on Friday Feb. 28 with NFIB Members and community leaders to discuss the thousands of new federal regulations have been proposed by the Federal Government
Senator Carper, the senior senator from Delaware, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee, which oversees personnel and management issues across the federal government said, “Today’s conversation with local business leaders about the challenges and opportunities they face, and how my colleagues and I in Washington can help create a nurturing environment for job creation, was valuable and informative. I have always believed that we don’t have to choose between having strong economic growth and strong regulations to protect our workers, our environment and our public health; we just need to strike the right balance between these important priorities by using some common sense"
“Regulations play a critical role in safeguarding our member businesses, their customers and the community at large,” said NFIB Delaware State Director, Jessica Cooper. “But increasingly, the regulatory process has been more of an impediment to businesses with more than 3,000 federal rules in the pipeline today. New rules are drafted without consideration or review of the compounded impacts with other regulations. We need to ensure that the government works with businesses of all kinds to better address their needs.”
