State Government Can Get It Right

            Before he left, Chief Counsel for Advocacy Thomas M. Sullivan left behind some final thoughts for our blog:

            Some states such as Oregon have a small business ombudsman who connects small businesses with the appropriate state government official or service.  Other states have small business economic development teams housed in the state attorney general’s office (like Virginia) or in their state commerce department (such as Oklahoma) or in a separate economic development agency (as does Rhode Island).  Wherever it may be housed, be sure to investigate whether your state’s office is in the forefront of state small business regulatory flexibility.
