Advocacy to Host Regulatory Roundtable in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday June 7th, the Office of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration will host a roundtable in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The event will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI) Conference Center.

 

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 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 open to the public. If you would like to attend, please register at:
