This Week on America’s Business

By October 13, 2006General

Americas Business with Mike HambrickElection Day is drawing nigh, and this week host Mike Hambrick of “America’s Business” speaks with Renee Giachino of The American Justice Partnership on one initiated measure in South Dakota. Amendment E would open the floodgates of lawsuits against public officials, in the process attracting business-hostile litigation from across the country. Renee also addresses the problem of activist attorneys general.

Heading father west, Mike interviews Steve Lethert, Comptroller at Woods Power Grip in Laurel, Montana, about the expired and much-needed R&D tax credit. Tony Raimondo, CEO of Behlen Mfg. Co in Columbus, Neb., gives advice to small-and-medium sized manufacturers on becoming an exporter, and discusses the need to narrow the skills gap.

Roger Hannay of Hannay Reels, Inc., in Westerlo, N.Y. steps up to the “American Business” Soapbox, and NAM President John Engler closes with “The Last Word.”
