WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Friday, March 16th, the Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business Administration will host a Regulatory Reform Roundtable in Milwaukee. The event will begin at8:30 a.m. at Schlitz Park, 1555 N Rivercenter Drive, Milwaukee, WI 53212. SBA Administrator Linda McMahon will be in attendance.

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.

“The SBA Office of Advocacy has a unique mission to be the voice of small business in federal regulations,” SBA Administrator Linda McMahon said. “It is an independent office working especially hard to make its resources known to small business owners all over the country. I encourage small business owners in greater Milwaukee to take advantage of this opportunity to inform Advocacy of their federal regulatory hardships.”

“The Office of Advocacy plays a crucial role in supporting our nation’s small businesses,” said Major L. 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.”
