Williams Pens Letters to Government Agencies on Regulatory Overreach Fears

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, House Committee on Small Business Chairman Roger Williams (R-TX) issued the following statement after sending letters to the Federal Trade Commission, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Department of Energy, and Bureau of Land Management regarding numerous regulations and their potentially adverse impacts on small businesses.

“Far too often, the federal government fails to consider the impacts that its regulatory agenda has on small businesses,” said Chairman Williams. “The latest round of rules is just another example of the interests of small businesses being disregarded in the rulemaking process. Whether it be saddling our country’s optometrists with redundant requirements, restricting access to credit in local communities by kneecapping small credit firms, hamstringing the construction of energy transformers amid historically high energy costs, or orchestrating an unprecedented overreach into how ranchers can use their land, all these new rules add more red tape and costs to our country’s innovators. The Biden Administration must keep the concerns of small businesses at the front of mind. As Chairman of the House Committee on Small Business, I’m committed to standing up for Main Street America and against over-regulating America’s job creators.”
