Calling small and mid market MFG -- Regional regulatory reform roundtables could help you grow

Posted by Gino DiCaro, VP, Communications on April 24, 2018

The Small Businees Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy is an independent office that serves as a voice for small business within the federal government, the watchdog for the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) and the source of small business statistics. Advocacy advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, federal agencies, federal courts, and state policy makers.

Regulatory reform is a centerpiece of the current President's agenda, with two signed executive orders addressing the regulatory burden faced by the private sector.

Manufacturers can participate and meet SBA staff in person at SBA regional regulatory reform roundtables across the country. The next set of roundtables will be in California the week of April 30th, 2018. These roundtables are free and open to the public. The information gathered at these roundtables will be utilized to inform agencies, congress and the public on what specific regulations can be modified or removed to help small businesses.  Please see below for the upcoming schedule:
