Region 10 Advocate
President Trump has made regulatory reform a centerpiece of his agenda. Since the Office of Advocacy is the independent voice for small business within the federal government, our office has developed a Regulatory Reform Action Plan to make sure the agencies keep small business issues in mind as they work to accomplish this goal. We are hosting Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables across the country to gather small businesses’ input about federal regulations that are most burdensome to them. Advocacy is using the information gathered at these roundtables to inform agencies, Congress, and the public on how specific regulations can be modified or removed to help small businesses.
Our most recent roundtables were in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York. Keep an eye on this webpage for updated information on Advocacy’s involvement in helping to reduce the regulatory burden on our nation’s small businesses.
Small Businesses Speak Up!
Also, we have created a form for small businesses to let us know about the federal regulations that are burdensome to them. Please feel free to fill that form out here and distribute to small businesses who may be interested. It will help us shape our future regional regulatory roundtables.
