Analecta Bollandiana (13-14 )
Paperback. 176 pages. OCLC Number: 52061823 Excerpt: . . . 4 since I came to the Senate as a matter of fact. When I took over as Chairman of this Committee in 1995, there had been a regular chorus of small businesses complaining about the difficulty and even, I would say, the impossibility of complying with the mul-titude of Federal and State regulations.
