WASHINGTON — The Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) has launched a new initiative, the Center for Regulatory Solutions (CRS), to make the regulatory process more open and transparent, and help increase public awareness of how burdensome federal rules can harm small businesses.

“We are pleased to announce this new initiative to bring much-needed sanity and common sense to the regulatory process,” said Karen Kerrigan, SBE Council president and CEO. “The mission of the Center for Regulatory Solutions is to make the regulatory process more open and transparent to ensure that regulators listen and respond to the concerns of small business owners. We will also highlight rules and mandates that continue to exert a drag on the economic recovery and undermine the competitiveness of America’s most innovative entrepreneurs.

“And most important, we want to provide constructive input to policymakers so that our regulatory system no longer acts as a barrier to starting, managing, and growing an American enterprise.”

CRS will not only educate the public about the regulatory process and specific rules that impact small business, but it will also hold federal agencies accountable when they overreach and fail to abide by the rule of law. With this in mind, the CRS will play a constructive role in offering policymakers common-sense reforms and improvements to the regulatory process.

As part of this initiative CRS has launched a website at http://centerforregulatorysolutions.org.
