Letters to Federal Agencies in Response to Feedback from Small Businesses

As a result of President Trump’s Executive Orders, 13771 and 13777, Advocacy has begun an effort to hear, firsthand, from small businesses across the country about specific federal regulatory burdens facing their businesses. Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), agencies are required to consider the impact of their regulations on small entities when promulgating federal regulations. Advocacy believes that the RFA and consideration of small business economic impacts is a good place to start when an agency is selecting rules that are being reviewed for reform or elimination.

These are the letters that Advocacy disseminated to federal agencies as a follow up to the feedback received from online comment letters and Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables in 2018:
