Small businesses asked to weigh in on regulations and NAFTA

Publish date:

The U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy is hosting small business roundtables in Atlanta next week — one to hear from small businesses facing regulatory burdens, and the other to explore the opinions of small businesses about NAFTA.

The Regulatory Reform Roundtable, to be held April 10 in Atlanta, will give small business owners an opportunity to convey which specific federal regulatory burdens present the biggest barriers to small business growth, the NMMA said.

Information compiled from this roundtable and others will help the Office of Advocacy generate a new report informing Congress and the public of the top regulatory issues for small businesses.

Businesses can register for the roundtable, which runs 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., here.

The Office of Advocacy will hold a NAFTA Modernization Meeting on April 11 in Atlanta to write a report for Congress on how the agreement affects small businesses.

The office is seeking input from small businesses to get firsthand accounts from small businesses on the potential economic effects of a renegotiated NAFTA.

That roundtable will run from 9 a.m. to noon. Businesses can register here.
