Stop the Music: New Regulation Could Stop the Music in DC Concert Venues & Restaurants - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 10/27/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors)

New noise bills being floated by the DC council could shut down many concert venues and restaurants around the nation’s capital if they are passed. The Daily Caller reports that “The new law will effectively extend noise ordinances from residential zones in the District of Columbia to commercial zones and business owners say it could force them to shut down.” One bill would require any business that owns a liquor license to measure noise levels daily with a decibel meter. Business owners say it could shut many of them down. Some business owners are complaining that they are being punished because of a few bad actors. So once again government regulation is hurting business in America and literally stopping the music. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
