In an effort to make the voices of Main Street heard in the rulemaking process, the House Small Business Committee has launched "Small Biz Reg Watch," an interactive website that allows visitors to view and then comment on proposed regulations that impact small businesses. Congressman Tim Huelskamp, a member of the Committee, encourages Kansans to visit the website and submit their feedback. There are several regulations currently listed that would be of interest to Kansans, including rules relating to ObamaCare, animal feeding operations, and critical habitat designations.
"From ObamaCare rules to Dodd-Frank red tape, and from the EPA to the USDA, the Obama Administration has launched an unprecedented torrent of regulatory activity that leaves no stone unturned," Congressman Huelskamp said. "For the last two years I have heard so much frustration from Kansans whose businesses are plagued with too many rules and too much red tape from Washington. To make matters worse, Congress and President Obama just raised taxes on many small business owners, and the full implementation of ObamaCare is right around the corner. It's time to turn off the regulatory spigot that is drowning Main Street. I encourage Kansans to make their voices heard and to help us stop the excessive rulemaking."
