Business group points to ‘tidal wave’ of regulations


The Small Businesses for Sensible Regulations Coalition issued this infographic, meant to illustrate the increasing number of notices, proposed rules and final rules published each day in the Federal Register.

“About 2,000 new or proposed regulations are entered into the federal register each month –a rate that the business community cannot keep up with,” according to the group.

Lincoln, a former senator from Arkansas, chairs the coalition, which is a project of the National Federation of Independent Business.
