SBE Council names top policy developments for small business in 2011

The Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) issued “Top Policy Highlights and Lowlights for Small Business in 2011,” a list of significant policy developments this past year for the nation’s small business owners and entrepreneurs.

SBE Council President & CEO Karen Kerrigan said the list includes a range of issues that will impact the economic and business climate for 2012 and beyond. Small business owners and entrepreneurs played a key role in helping to advance constructive policies on the list. The list also includes other developments where the passage, failure to advance, or results of certain policies will continue to affect business conditions and the political debate for the foreseeable future.

“The past year was a rollercoaster ride when it came to the economy and government policies. While entrepreneurs can claim some policy victories in 2011, Washington came up woefully short on the types of policies needed to boost business confidence and strong economic growth. Unfortunately, it looks like similar conditions will prevail in 2012,” observed Kerrigan.
