New Poll to Show Small Business Owners View Weak Consumer Demand, Not Regulation, As Biggest Problem
Business Leaders to Release Poll Contradicting Anti-Regulation Rhetoric Ahead of House Small Business Committee Hearing
On February 1 at 11 AM EST, results from a national opinion poll of small business owners will show that, in contrast to anti-regulation rhetoric to be heard at the House Committee on Small Business hearing Wednesday, small business owners across the country do not cite regulations as a big concern and instead, view them as important to their business and a modern economy. The poll, which will be released by the American Sustainable Business Council, Main Street Alliance and Small Business Majority, will also outline financial, food safety, energy and other policies small business owners support.
