By March 1, 2013Regulations

Yesterday, NAM Executive Committee Member Drew Greenblatt, president and owner of Marlin Steel Wire Products in Baltimore, testified before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law. The focus of the hearing was on the impact of regulations. In his testimony Mr. Greenblatt examined the negative impact of regulations on jobs and the global competitiveness of U.S. businesses.

Manufacturers are facing a growing number of burdensome regulations from various government agencies making it harder to compete today’s global marketplace. Mr. Greenblatt stated:

“To compete on a global stage, manufacturing in the United States needs policies that enable companies to thrive and create jobs. Growing manufacturing jobs will strengthen the U.S. middle class and continue to fuel America’s economic recovery.”

We need to find ways to reduce the cumulative burden of regulations on manufacturers so they can focus on getting Americans back to work.
