AWPA pushes a better treatment of small business

AWPA-logoIn response to the growing number of government regulations that unfairly burden America’s small businesses, manufacturers and startups, the American Wire Producers Association (AWPA) is adding its support to the newly launched Rethink Red Tape coalition and advocacy campaign, a project of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council), amd the International Franchise Association and Women Impacting Public Policy.

A press release said that the multimillion-dollar campaign, which will engage lawmakers in Washington, DC, and up to a dozen states, will highlight the challenges regulations pose to small businesses and small manufacturers and empower entrepreneurs, small business employees and key stakeholders to advocate legislative reforms that will lead to smarter regulations that help small manufacturers throughout the United States thrive.

“In today’s global economy, small to medium size businesses struggle to maintain our position as we provide good wages and benefits to our workers; provide a safe place to work; and at the same time work to stay in compliance with the continuing burden of mandated regulations,” said AWPA President Milton Magnus. “Many times we have to hire consultants to help us stay in compliance. Most small companies can’t afford full time staff for this purpose. Joining with others in the Rethink Red Tape coalition, is a cost effective way to address these important issues.”

Magnus, and others, including NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, encouraged companies to support the efforts of Rethink Red Tape, a multiyear campaign that will educate Americans about the impact regulations have on small businesses and small manufacturers and about solutions that will lead to regulatory reform.
