This is because there is no clear reason to think that the incoming businesses would be able to 'fill the gap' created by the harmed local industry on which the economy primarily rests. Ex) if the economy was primarily based on the extant oil drilling industry which is now seriously harmed by the regulations (regulations that regulate presumably on that sector specifically), what reason is there to believe that a new business will be able to adequately make up for that loss?

The author is arguing that regulation can help the economy as a whole even if it hurts a few local industries. B tells us that the economies of these areas are not based mostly on these industries that would be harmed.
