But the requirement for businesses is far more odious. Small business owners who wanted to expand would face a new required expense. The rule is utterly indifferent to the use of the building -- is this a chemical manufacturing facility or a coffee shop?

This is just one more example of how ignorant people generally are of how businesses operate.
