The U.S. Small Business (SBA) Office of Advocacy will host Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York this month. Advocacy needs NJ, PA, and NY small business input that SBA can use to pursue reforms that will benefit their businesses. We also expect representatives of federal agencies and congressional offices to attend the roundtables.
The purpose of Advocacy’s Regional Regulatory Roundtables is to:
- Identify regional small business regulatory issues in order to assist agencies with regulatory reform and reduction in compliance with Executive Orders 13771 & 13777;
- Compile crucial information for Advocacy’s new report on existing small business regulatory burdens across the nation, identifying specific recommendations for regulatory changes based upon first-hand accounts from small businesses across the country; and
- Inform and educate the small business public as to how Advocacy and SBA can assist them with their small business.
Small businesses that are not able to attend these Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables may inform the Office of Advocacy about other regulatory issues at https://www.sba.gov/advocacy/regulatory-reform-input.
The Roundtables will be held as follows:
Princeton, NJ – Tuesday, Sept. 11, 8:30 a.m., Crowne Plaza Princeton, Plainsboro Township, NJ
Scranton, PA – Wednesday, Sept. 12, 8:30 a.m., Radisson Lackawanna Station Hotel Scranton, Scranton, PA
Poughkeepsie, NY – Thursday, Sept. 13, 8:30 a.m., Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, Poughkeepsie, NY
