Advocacy to Host Regulatory Roundtable in Bangor, Maine
Release No. 19-6 ADV
WASHINGTON, D.C.— On Tuesday, July 16, the Office of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration will host a roundtable in Bangor, Maine, at Jeff’s Catering Banquet & Event Hall – 15 Littlefield Way. The event will be from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
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.
“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.”
This event is free and open to the public. If you would like to attend, please register at:
