Upton Urges Local Businesses to Make Their Voices Heard: AmericanJobCreators.com
House initiative “AmericanJobCreators.com” invites business owners to let Congress know how federal regulations are holding them back from creating jobs and doing business
Congressman Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph), Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, is asking businesses in Michigan to let Congress know how federal regulations are holding them back from creating jobs and what policies they believe would help encourage economic growth.
“No one better understands the economic challenges facing our nation than folks here in Michigan,” said Upton. “After nearly three years of double-digit unemployment, many of the policy decisions coming out of Washington continue to delay our recovery and fail to bring businesses the long-term certainty they need to grow. With the launch of AmericanJobCreators.com, businesses from across the country are able to share their personal stories in a centralized location about how federal rules and regulations are making it difficult for them to operate. Our goal must continue to be eliminating the burdensome red tape that unnecessarily stands in the way of jobs, innovation, and American competitiveness.”
