Reducing Unnecessary Regulatory Burden

SBA Administrator Linda McMahon has appointed a task force to evaluate small business regulations and determine which should be repealed, replaced, or modified.

Your feedback on SBA regulations will help the agency more effectively promote job creation and the economic growth of small businesses.

  4. Tell your story—identify the SBA regulation or policy that has adversely affected you. Explain how changing it will bring cost savings and benefits to small business owners and entrepreneurs.

What we will do next:

  • Cut unnecessary or ineffective rules that stifle business.
    For every new regulation the SBA proposes, it must cut two.
  • Modernize requirements to better help small businesses.
  • Simplify and streamline processes so that the SBA operates more efficiently.
  • Ensure disaster victims receive financial assistance quickly to rebuild and recover.
