Die Cast - Government Affairs

A NADCA endorsed bill to provide more oversight of regulators is moving through the newly Republican controlled Congress. The small business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act has secured significant support in the House, and for the first time, has a chance of securing the sixty votes needed in the Senate for passage. The bill requires government regulators to include the indirect impacts on small business, in addition to the direct impacts of a rule, in any analysis when developing new regulations. The bill also forces the EPA and other federal agencies to hold a small business review panel when developing a rule impacts that impact small businesses. NADCA has repeatedly raised concerns over agencies skipping the review process and downplaying the number of small business they believe their rule will affect.
