Washington, D.C. (May 17, 2017) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) praised the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee for passing two bills that would reform the regulatory process. The Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act and Regulatory Accountability Act would give small business owners a greater voice in the regulatory process.
“Small business owners appreciate the efforts to create a regulatory process that listens and responds to their concerns,” said NFIB Senior Vice President for Public Policy Brad Close. “We especially want to thank Sen. James Lankford for his work to expand the protections of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Right now, small business owners are an afterthought in the march toward more red tape. His bill would make sure that small business owners concerns are heard as rules are being developed.
“We also thank Sen. Rob Portman for his work on the bipartisan Regulatory Accountability Act. It’s time for these strong reforms to move forward to the Senate floor. Small business owners deserve to know where their senators stand on one of their top priorities.”
