Rebecca Krafft

The February-March 2014 issue of The Small Business Advocate features the FY 2013 Report on the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The report shows how well federal agencies took small entities into account in their rulemaking last year. Recent Advocacy news includes regulatory comment letters on the SEC’s crowdfunding proposal and OSHA’s silica proposal; two research publications on small business finance; and a report on a Maryland small business conference in which Advocacy staff participated. Also featured is the new chair of the Senate Small Business Committee, Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), and a tour of women-owned businesses in New Hampshire.
