red tape houseThe U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, the independent watchdog for small business within the federal government, is hosting a series of Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables across the country. The next two will be in Boise and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on July 11 and 13, respectively.

These roundtables are designed to help the federal government identify specific regulatory barriers to small business growth through first-hand testimony. This feedback will be used to assist federal agencies in complying with President Trump’s directives to revise or eliminate burdensome regulations.

Small business input from across the country is needed and SBA’s Office of Advocacy will use it to pursue reforms to benefit small business. Representatives from federal agencies and Congressional offices will also attend.

Upcoming Roundtables

SBA’s Office of Advocacy has also established an online form for small businesses that may not be able to attend, but have regulatory concerns they’d like to share.

Roundtable listening sessions were also held recently in Louisiana. Burdensome regulations for home builders were among the key topics of discussion.
