SBA to Host Regulatory Fairness Hearing

On Aug. 19, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Ombudsman, Stefanie Wehagen, will host small business owners, economic development specialists, trade group representatives and community leaders for a hearing on fairness in regulatory enforcement. 

The Office of the National Ombudsman’s mission is to assist small businesses experiencing excessive or unfair federal regulatory enforcement actions, such as repetitive audits or investigations, excessive fines, penalties, threats, retaliation or other unfair actions by a federal agency. This event will give the small business community a chance to voice concerns about the regulatory burdens imposed by federal agencies. Participants will also have an opportunity to learn more about the range of resources available from the SBA.

Comments and concerns raised at the regulatory fairness hearing will be directed to the appropriate federal agency for a fairness review to reduce undue regulatory burdens, while helping small businesses succeed.
