Chairman Chabot Responds to Nomination of Chief Counsel for Advocacy at SBA
WASHINGTON – House Committee on Small Business Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) released the following statement after the President nominated David Christian Tryon, a fellow Ohioan, as Chief Counsel for Advocacy at the Small Business Administration (SBA):
“As the Administration and Congress continue to work together to relieve the regulatory burden on small businesses, it is critical that the SBA Office of Advocacy has someone at its helm to be the independent voice for small businesses within the federal government,” said Chairman Chabot.
“I applaud the President’s decision to move forward with the nomination of Mr. Tryon. As the Small Business Committee wrote in August, nominating a Chief Counsel for Advocacy will help the President’s ‘efforts to provide regulatory relief to spur economic growth, promote innovation, and encourage entrepreneurship.’ The Committee looks forward to continuing our work with the Office of Advocacy and ensuring that federal agencies consider how all proposed regulations will affect small businesses,” Chabot added.
In August, the Small Business Committee Majority signed a letter urging the President to nominate a Chief Counsel for Advocacy. The letter can be read HERE.
