NFIB supports two bills recently introduced in the U.S. Senate
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Nov. 1, 2023) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, supports the introduction of the Employer Reporting Improvement Act and the Paperwork Burden Reduction Act in the U.S. Senate. NFIB released the following statement from Josselin Castillo, NFIB Manager of Federal Government Relations:
“We commend Senators Thune, Warner, Young, and Cortez-Masto for introducing the Employer Reporting Improvement Act in the Senate. This is a breath of fresh air that small businesses desperately need. By allowing electronic filing of essential documents and promoting flexibility, this legislation slices through bureaucratic barriers, protecting small businesses from being overly exposed to unwarranted fines. It’s not just about reducing unnecessary paperwork; it’s about empowering small business owners with the flexibility they need to better support their valued employees.”
“The Paperwork Burden Reduction Act, introduced by Senators Warner, Young, Cortez-Masto, and Thune, takes a significant step towards providing relief for small business owners from unnecessary red tape. By offering alternative reporting methods, this legislation reduces cumbersome red tape and drives efficiency. This legislation promotes badly needed flexibility and streamlines operations, lowering costs and helping small employers focus on what they do best, running their businesses and supporting their employees.”
Small business owners consistently rank “unreasonable government regulations” as a top concern for their businesses.
