On February 1, the House Small Business Committee hosted a hearing on "The Path to Job Creation: The State of American Small Business." SBE Council member Mike Fredrich provided great testimony on the threats and uncertainties that continue to linger for small businesses. Committee staff put together this great highlight video of the hearing, which features Fredrich.
As summarized by House Small Business Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) regarding testimony provided by witnesses: "There is no doubt that the lack of certainty in burdensome regulatory requirements and complex tax structures coming from Washington continues to be an impediment for growth and job creation for small business owners. This must change sooner rather than later if we want to see economic growth and Americans back on the job.”
