The National Federation of Independent Businesses of Florida says Federal business regulations are drowning small businesses in the state. The group is warning government leaders about the threat of what it calls “President Obama’s Regulatory Tidal Wave.” Florida’s small businesses can’t grow jobs when they’re facing a wave of regulations. That’s according to NFIB Florida Executive Director Bill Herrle. And during a Thrusday conference call Florida Congressman Steve Southland said that could slow the state’s recovery following the recession.
