TCATA Represents Members on Important Issues
(June, 2018) TCATA staff and committees continue the work of representing member business interests before legislators and regulators. A few recent activities:
* Joined with the National Association of Manufacturers and others in writing to the Office of Management and Budget to compel federal agencies to weigh the costs and benefits of new regulations before enacting new rules.
* Signed a coalition letter speaking against a California regulation that would mandate the use of electricity for businesses and consumers, taking away free market choices.
* Joined several other business groups in drafting a letter sent to leading senators and representatives that encourages their support of bipartisan legislation to streamline the IRS reporting process to which employers are subjected under the Affordable Care Act.
* TCATA CEO David Cotter recently attended a roundtable discussion hosted by the Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy, whose main purpose is to ensure that the impact of federal regulation on small business is considered before being finalized. The SBA heard directly from TCATA and small businesses about the impact of regulations. Suggestions were made on how regulation could be made more effective and less burdensome.
