Statement from Small Business Majority Founder & CEO John Arensmeyer on yesterday’s decision by the U.S. House of Representatives to adopt two resolutions that would overturn the U.S. Department of Labor’s rule that makes it easier for states to establish retirement savings plans for private sector workers.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted yesterday to adopt HJR 66 and HJR 67, which would do significant harm to small businesses. Striking down this Department of Labor rule would have a chilling effect on states that are setting up their own retirement savings programs, which would be especially problematic for small employers, given that a majority are unable to offer retirement plans due to a variety of barriers.

Statement by John Arensmeyer, Founder & CEO of Small Business Majority, on why today’s vote by the U.S. Senate to begin the process of repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA) through budget reconciliation will harm small businesses

The U.S. Senate’s vote today to begin the process to repeal the ACA without any sort of replacement plan is an irresponsible action that will cripple our nation’s small business owners, their employees and self-employed entrepreneurs who have gained access to coverage under the healthcare law. Repealing the healthcare law will only lead to job losses and skyrocketing premiums and cause deficits to soar, hurting small businesses and the economy overall.

Statement by Chris Armstrong, Director of Special Initiatives for Small Business Majority, on how HB 2 continues to be bad for business in North Carolina

It is deeply disappointing that North Carolina lawmakers failed to do the right thing yesterday when they allowed HB 2 to remain law. This destructive measure has already cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars and there is no indication it will not do further harm to small businesses in the future as organizations and tourists continue to boycott the state.
