U.S. Rep. Jared Golden chaired a meeting of the House Small Business Committee, where he heard an earful of complaints about federal policies affecting business. One is a transportation rule affecting young truck drivers.
The Committee heard from several business owners, including Jason Brochu, president of the Pleasant River Paper located in Maine. He told lawmakers that his company has been hurt by trade and federal regulatory policies and urged lawmakers to address policies that hurt small business.
“You got an agency that is trying to ignore the intent of Congress,” says Golden. “You know we are here to make sure to hold them to the original intent of the legislation.”
