Pennsylvania small businesses are calling on leaders in Washington to make common sense reforms to the regulatory process. With thousands of regulations in the pipeline, NFIB is working to protect small businesses from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh from the growing number and burdensome nature of federal regulations. NFIB supports eliminating uncertainty and red-tape by increasing small business input as regulations are developed, ensuring greater transparency and peer review of the data and science on which regulations are based, and requiring a thorough review of regulations’ benefits and costs. These steps are essential to enable small businesses to expand, hire and invest and ultimately make America’s economy healthier.
