(OPEN):
A NEWLY LAUNCHED CAMPAIGN BY THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS TARGETS "ONEROUS" AND "UNPREDICTABLE" GOVERNMENT-REGULATIONS--WHICH, THE ORGANIZATION SAYS, ARE ON THE RISE, AND ARE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACTING AMERICAN JOBS, GROWTH, AND COMPETITION.  "SMALL BUSINESSES FOR SENSIBLE REGULATIONS" IS A COALITION OF MANUFACTURERS, FARMERS, RETAILERS, AND OTHER BUSINESSES THAT'S CHAIRED BY FORMER U-S SENATOR BLANCHE LINCOLN...

(LINCOLN):
"THE UNITED STATES CURRENTLY SPENDS AN ESTIMATED ONE-POINT-75-TRILLION DOLLARS, ANNUALLY, TO COMPLY WITH GOVERNMENT-RULES.  AND, THAT NUMBER IS ON THE RISE.  WHILE SOME REGULATION IS ESSENTIAL, THERE ARE AN UNPRECEDENTED 42-HUNDRED NEW REGULATIONS PENDING, AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, TODAY--REGULATIONS WHICH ARE HITTING SMALL BUSINESSES, AND THE JOBS [THAT] THEY CREATE, THE HARDEST.  THIS IS SIMPLY UNSUSTAINABLE IN A GROWING ECONOMY--WHEN WE NEED TO CREATE JOBS, NOW MORE THAN EVER.
"

(BRIDGE):
N-F-I-B PRESIDENT AND C-E-O, DAN DANNER, ADDS...

(DANNER):
"
IN N-F-I-B'S HISTORY, FEW ISSUES HAVE BEEN MORE IMPORTANT TO AMERICA'S SMALL BUSINESSES THAN BRINGING BALANCE TO THE FEDERAL REGULATORY-PROCESS.  COMPLYING WITH FEDERAL REGULATIONS IS INCREDIBLY COSTLY TO SMALL BUSINESSES:  THE AVERAGE BUSINESS-OWNER PAYS OVER 10-THOUSAND DOLLARS, PER EMPLOYEE, TO STAY IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT-RULES.  THIS NEW CAMPAIGN WILL GIVE VOICE TO THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS WHO ARE CALLING FOR SENSIBLE REGULATIONS THAT [BOTH] PROTECT JOBS, AND DO NOT STIFLE ECONOMIC-GROWTH."
