Reporting from Washington – After spending a record amount this election season to change the balance of power in Washington, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce this week plans to announce a pro-business agenda that will include attacking federal regulations in four areas: labor, energy, healthcare and financial services.
The business organization’s leaders will announce their targets Wednesday, arguing that excessive government regulation is hampering economic recovery.
“American businesses are sinking under its weight,” chamber President Thomas J. Donohue said Monday.
