Abstract

"Capitol Update" piece on Maine senator Olympia Snowe's introduction of the Regulatory Flexibility Reform Act of 2005, which would ensure that federal agencies conduct an analysis of the impacts of federal regulations on small business, which the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 was meant to achieve. Snowe wants to close a loophole that allows a federal agency to avoid these analyses by requiring states to regulate small entities or regulating an industry so rigorously that it has a negative trickle down impact on other industries.
