Advocacy to Host Regulatory Roundtable in Cincinnati, Ohio

Release No. 17-14

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday August 1st, the Office of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration will host a roundtable in Cincinnati, Ohio with House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot in attendance. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Hyatt Regency.

The purpose of this event 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. Additionally, information compiled from this roundtable and others will help Advocacy generate a new report informing Congress and the public of the top regulatory issues for small businesses.

“Across the country, federal government regulations affect small businesses in all industries, making it harder and more costly for small companies to start, grow, and expand their business. Entrepreneurs are struggling with high compliance costs and expensive mandates. We need to lighten the massive regulatory burden and make it easier for small businesses to thrive. The SBA Office of Advocacy is hosting a roundtable to hear from small business owners about the regulations that present the biggest barriers to growth and we hope you can make it,” said House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot.

“Advocacy thanks Chairman Chabot for welcoming us to Cincinnati. A main priority of the Office of Advocacy is to become increasingly accessible to all small businesses,” said Major L. Clark III, Acting Chief Counsel for Advocacy. “Holding these regional roundtables to hear concerns directly from small business owners is a key component in our efforts to help lessen the heavy regulatory burden on small business.”
