Committee on Small Business Oversight Efforts

Holding SBA Accountable

The SBA took on an oversized role during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now that the pandemic is over, we must look under the hood to see what the agency did well, and what they dropped the ball on. Our members are working to ensure that the SBA is always operating in the best interest of America's job creators and are being good stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Reducing Burdensome Regulations

Small businesses are the economic engines of our country. Unfortunately, when our nation's job creators are forced to spend time complying with burdensome regulations instead of their core functions, it negatively hurts their bottom line. On the Committee on Small Businesses, our members are working to protect American businesses from an overly burdensome regulatory structure.
