The Government Comes to You – SBA Regulatory Roundtables

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy recently announced two new dates for its ongoing “regulatory roundtable” series. On March 19 in San Antonio, Texas and and March. 20 in Houston, Texas, the SBA will speak directly with small businesses about which regulations concern industry the most.

Any ARSA member that can attend either of these specific events is highlight encouraged to do so – and report back on the discussion. Regardless of possible attendance in Texas (or at future roundtables), every ARSA member should submit input to the office directly by following the link below and completing the input form:

The 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.

The purpose of Advocacy’s Regional Regulatory Roundtables is to:

(1) Identify regional small business regulatory issues in order to assist agencies with regulatory reform and reduction in compliance with Executive Orders 13771 & 13777.
(2) 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.
(3) Inform and educate the small business public as to how Advocacy and SBA can assist them with their small business goals.

For more information regarding Advocacy’s efforts to help reduce the regulatory burden on small businesses and upcoming roundtable events, please visit: www.sba.gov/advocacy/regulatory-reform.
