A Senate committee is mulling over a bill aimed at making it less cumbersome to operate a small business by creating a board to look into concerns regarding enforcement by regulatory state agencies. Supporters of the legislation say small businesses are overburdened by the constant battle to satisfy rules and regulations coming from state departments and agencies. Representative Brian Baker of Belton, who sponsors the House version of the bill, says small businesses must have some say. But Carla Klein of the Sierra Club tells a Senate committee says there are some problems with this bill, particularly one that would give violators a pass, provided they are unaware of certain rules or didn’t break them intentionally. The legislation’s backers say creation of the Small Business Regulatory Fairness Board will allow small businesses with regulatory concerns to have those concerns heard and remedied outside of court.
