NFIB/Florida Announces Effort to Stop President Obama’s Regulatory Tidal Wave
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – NFIB/Florida will host a teleconference call at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 2, 2012 to announce the launch of a new campaign aimed at stopping President Obama’s Regulatory Tidal Wave. The effort is part of a nine-state, education campaign focused on elevating the stories of its small business members in order to educate the public about the impacts these regulations could impose on small-business growth. States include: Florida, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Completed polls demonstrate that regulatory burdens are a top reason why small businesses are not hiring at a similar pace to previous years. A Gallup poll released earlier this year found 85 percent http://www.sensibleregulations.org/2012/02/new-gallup-poll-finds-regula tions-still-impede-small-business-hiring/> of small businesses surveyed weren’t hiring and about half cited government regulations as the reason.
NFIB/Florida Executive Director Bill Herrle will open the conference call and announce the launch of the campaign and its main objectives. Bill will be joined by Congressman Steve Southerland and a small business owner to give personal examples of how these regulations affect their operations.
WHO: Bill Herrle, Executive Director – NFIB Florida
Congressman Steve Southerland
Florida Small Business Owner
WHEN: Thursday, August 2, 2012
REQUIRED: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the conference call information.
