On Tuesday, March 22, 2011 the Chamber hosted an event that explored the array of new regulations American businesses are dealing with, including those related to health care reform, Dodd-Frank, and the EPA’s intent to regulate greenhouse gases. The regulatory process has spun out of control without the necessary checks and balances, making concerns about regulatory burdens a rallying cry of Congress and the business community. Even the administration has acknowledged the burden regulations can cause. To ensure that regulations are based on the best data and the agencies are held accountable for their actions, the U.S. Chamber believes changes are needed in the regulatory process to restore balance, restraint, and common sense.
