BOSTON (October 16, 2017): The following statement may be attributed to National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Massachusetts’s State Director, Chris Carlozzi, regarding the regulatory reform proposal (House Bill No. 1675) being heard before the Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight today.
In recent years, small businesses witnessed an unprecedented amount of new regulations. Massachusetts business owners continue to spend a bulk of their time trying to comply with an endless sea of regulations and red tape when they should be concentrating on doing what they do best: creating job opportunities for the people of our state.
This proposal essentially presents a set of rules to guide the rule makers. If Massachusetts fails to accurately examine the economic costs and perceived benefits of new regulations we inhibit both job creation and economic growth.
