Graves Announces Committee Schedule for Week of March 11
Subcommittee to Hold Hearing on Reducing Regulatory Burden on Small Businesses
WASHINGTON, DC – The Small Business Committee, chaired by Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO), today announced the schedule for the week of March 11, 2013:
On Thursday, March 14, at 10:00 a.m. the Small Business Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight and Regulations, under the chairmanship of Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ), will conduct a hearing titled Regulating the Regulators – Reducing Burdens on Small Business. The hearing will take place in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
“Federal agencies should be expected to analyze the economic impact of their regulations on businesses of all sizes, but in particular small businesses ill-equipped to handle oppressive red tape,” said subcommittee Chairman Schweikert. “If that impact is found to be outsized, it is in the best interest of all parties for alternatives that are less costly to be considered. Small businesses represent 99.7 percent of all employers and employ 49.1 percent of the private-sector labor force. The goal of this hearing is to shed light on regulatory practices that continue to put these job creators at a competitive disadvantage in the marketplace.”
