The Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy is an independent office that serves as a voice for small business within the federal government, the watchdog for the Regulatory Flexibility Act and the source of small business statistics.
Advocacy advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, federal agencies, federal courts, and state policy makers.
The President has signed two executive orders addressing the regulatory burden faced by the private sector. To assist in accomplishing the goals of the executive orders, the office has developed a Regulatory Reform Action Plan.
As part of this plan, Advocacy is hosting Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables across the country, including in Santa Clarita, in an effort to hear directly from small businesses about what regulations concern them the most.

8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

This will be an opportunity for small business leaders to educate Advocacy and federal agencies through firsthand accounts of how they are impacted by federal regulations. The information gathered at these roundtables will be utilized to inform agencies, congress and the public on what specific regulations can be modified or removed to help small businesses.
