A combination of federal and state laws regulate businesses of all kinds and sizes, including rules for financial reporting, consumer protection measures, and environmental regulations. Antitrust laws, enforced primarily at the federal level, are intended to foster more competition by discouraging the formation of monopolies or other unfair business combinations or schemes.

Deceptive trade practice laws, meanwhile, prohibit such tactics as false advertising and automobile odometer tampering.
