Regulatory Reform and Rollback: The Effects on Small Businesses



The Committee on Small Business will meet for a hearing titled, “Regulatory Reform and Rollback: The Effects on Small Businesses.” The hearing will take place at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Complying with federal regulations continues to be one of the biggest challenges for America’s small businesses.  In an effort to reduce the continuing burden, both Congress and President Trump have taken steps to reduce the regulatory burden on small businesses by rolling back and revising existing regulations.  The President has also taken steps to reform the regulatory process and require federal agencies to review their existing regulations and identify candidates for removal or revision.  This hearing will examine the effects of Congress and the President’s regulatory reform and rollback efforts on small businesses and explore ways to continue to provide regulatory relief.
