Advocacy Invites Small Businesses to Attend Idaho Roundtables

Release No. 17-13

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business Administration invites Idaho and surrounding small business owners and affiliates from various industries to attend and participate in a series of roundtable events next week.

The first event will be held in Boise on Tuesday, July 11th and the second event will be held in Coeur d’Alene on Thursday, July 13th. The purpose of these events is to gain valuable insight into which specific federal regulatory burdens present the biggest barriers to small business growth. With these recommendations, Advocacy can better assist federal agencies in complying with President Trump’s directives to reduce burdensome regulations.

“I invite all Idaho small businesses to take advantage of this unique opportunity and voice their opinion on which federal regulations burden them the most,” said Senator Jim Risch, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

“The roundtable agendas are organized by business industry, allowing small business owners to conveniently attend during a time frame when their specific issues with federal regulation will be discussed,” said Acting Chief Counsel Major L. Clark, III. “However, we encourage small business owners to attend for any amount of time they are able.”
