Justice for Small Business

NFIB Welcomes
Judge Neil Gorsuch
as SCOTUS Nominee

Gorsuch’s watchful eye on the “administrative state” signals an end to runaway regulatory bureaucracies, says the National Federation of Independent Business

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) issued the following statement on behalf of President and CEO Juanita Duggan in response to President Donald J. Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court:

“Judge Gorsuch’s willingness to challenge the Chevron Doctrine, under which the courts often defer to regulatory agencies on the interpretation of statutes, is a very positive signal to small businesses. Regulatory overreach is a serious threat and the basis on which NFIB is actively fighting multiple agencies in federal court.”


“In the 2016 NFIB Problems and Priorities report, small business owners ranked Unreasonable Government Regulations as their second most serious problem from a list of 75 issues.”


“NFIB is suing to overturn the EPA Waters of the U.S. Rule, the EPA Clean Power Plan, and the Department of Labor Overtime Rule. Those cases could end up in the Supreme Court. Every small business owner has a stake in the next Supreme Court Justice, and we are very pleased by the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch.”
