Speak Out Against Overregulation
Call The California Regulatory Watch Hotline:
Has your business been the victim of a predatory and overzealous regulatory agency? Are state bureaucrats threatening to shut your doors or levy fines for minor code violations?
If so, I have set up the California Regulatory Watch to offer help.
I have received numerous disturbing reports of businesses being subjected to regulatory abuse. This is particularly damaging in a time of economic recession.
Just the other month a furniture store in Truckee reported that a state agency entered their store and confiscated a $1,300 chair for "testing purposes." At the time, the owner was not compensated or even given an adequate explanation for the seizure. As soon as I was notified, I called for an investigation and worked to ensure this serious abuse of power does not happen again.
The examples are numerous: a restaurant being forced to pay taxes on "projected" profits it had not yet made; a small business owner fined $100,000 for a minor technical infraction; truckers forced to overhaul their equipment to meet East Coast air standards; and the list goes on...
In many cases, the outcome was a huge victory for the business owner. But there are many other small businesses out there still struggling to stay afloat.
It is my hope that they use my hotline to speak out against the excessive regulatory burdens that have made it so difficult for them to do business and provide job opportunities here in California.
To report regulatory abuse, please call my hotline at (916) 443-5688 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By exposing strong-arm tactics of rogue agencies, we can better achieve regulatory relief so that business can once again thrive and create jobs.
