Federal environmental regulations impact a wide variety of small businesses, including farmers, construction companies, manufacturers, energy producers, and others across the entire country. Key environmental issues affecting small businesses can include waste, sustainable development of raw materials, clean water, air emissions, toxic substances, pesticides, land and cleanup, emergency management, and cross-cutting issues.

Federal environmental regulations can have a disproportionate impact on small businesses. It is important that federal environmental regulations consider small business impact not only for individual regulations, but also the regulatory system as a whole, Congress must ensure that small businesses are not disproportionately harmed and can continue to create jobs and grow our economy.
