Ask Dan: Government Regulation Is Out Of Control | NFIB CEO Video
Since January, federal agencies have proposed more than 1600 new regulations, with nearly 250 of those deemed to have an economic impact on businesses of more than $100 million dollars. "The regulatory apparatus is out of control," said NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner on his new web series Ask Dan. Small business owner Lois Griggs posed the question, “Why does the government always pick on small healthcare providers? They never seem to care how government regulators are ruining our business.”
Danner said more than 4,000 new rules are in the pipeline. NFIB is calling for all new regulations to be based on sound science and include cost-benefit analysis.
Danner asked small business owners to visit StopTheTidalWave.org to tell their own stories and to connect with others who share their concerns about overregulation.
