“The Office of Advocacy plays a crucial role in supporting our nation’s small businesses,” Major L. Clark III, acting chief counsel for Advocacy, said in a news release. “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.”
By gathering information at roundtable events across the country, including Santa Clarita, Advocacy can “better assist federal agencies in complying with President Trump’s directives to reduce burdensome regulations,” the release said.
Advocacy will also use roundtable feedback to generate a report for Congress, according to the release.
