President Trump has made regulatory reform part of his agenda and recently signed two executive orders addressing the regulatory burden faced by the private sector.  As part of the SBA’s plan to comply with the Executive Order and to seek input from small businesses they will holding regional roundtables.   

The goals for the regional roundtables are to: 

1. Identify regional small business regulatory issues in order to assist agencies with regulatory reform and reduction in compliance with Executive Orders 13771 & 13777;  

2. Compile crucial information for Advocacy’s new report on existing small business regulatory burdens across the nation, identifying specific recommendations for regulatory changes based upon first-hand accounts from small businesses across the country; and  

3. Inform and educate the small business public as to how Advocacy and SBA can assist them with their small business goals.  

CUNA and the Idaho Credit Union League will be working together to highlight to the SBA Office of Advocacy the complex compliance and regulatory burdens credit unions are facing, and how credit unions help small businesses with access to capital.
