WASHINGTON - Today, Members of the House Committee on Small Business heard from representatives of the small business community about the crushing impact of President Obama’s executive orders on America’s small businesses at a roundtable discussion on Capitol Hill.

The discussion was led by full Committee Steve Chabot (R-OH), Subcommittee on Contracting and Workforce Chairman Richard Hanna (R-NY) and Committee Member Rep. Steve Knight (R-CA).  

“It is clear from this morning’s discussions that the Obama administration’s executive orders are having a devastating effect on America’s small businesses, especially our small contractors,” said Chairman Chabot (R-OH). “Hearing directly from small businesses is essential to our efforts to fight back against this pattern of executive overreach that is harming our job creators.” 

Participating in the roundtable were representatives of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Society for Human Resource Management, IT Alliance for Public Sector, National Association of Manufacturers, HR Policy Association, Professional Services Council, Associated General Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, National Electrical Contractors Association and the American Council of Engineering Companies. 

Chairman Chabot, Subcommittee Chairman Richard Hanna, Rep. Steve Knight and representatives of the small business community discuss the impact of President Obama’s executive orders on small businesses.
