Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) concerned that Garland frequently
sides with regulators, unions, and trial lawyers

DC (March 16, 2016)
– Juanita Duggan, President and CEO of the National Federation of Independent Business
, today issued the following statement in reaction to President
Obama’s nomination of DC Circuit Judge Merrick Garland to the United States
Supreme Court:

cursory examination of his record points to a judge who nearly always sides
with regulators, labor unions, and trial lawyers at the expense of small
businesses.  That’s very discouraging.  Small business has been under heavy pressure
from the EPA, the DOL, the NLRB, and the rest of the alphabet soup of
regulators that have expanded their power over the private sector.

Garland has an extensive record and based on our initial examination we have
grave concerns.”  

To arrange an interview with Juanita Duggan, or
