NEWS | SBA Office of Advocacy Testifies on Hill

Productive small-business policy wouldn’t be possible without input and action from SBA leadership.

Last week, the House Committee on Small Business met to discuss the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy Report on the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The sole witness for this hearing was the Office of Advocacy Deputy Chief Counsel for Advocacy and current acting Chief Counsel Major L. Clark, answering Members’ questions on ways to increase and expand the work done by the office.

One point repeatedly raised by several Members of Congress was how seriously regulatory agencies consider and adopt the comments made by the Office of Advocacy.

Specific regulatory actions, like size standards for small businesses, Scope 3 emission guidelines, and the recent Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Supreme Court ruling were also discussed.

NSBA has been an outspoken supporter of the SBA Office of Advocacy for its real work to support tangible action in the name of productive small-business policy.
