Small Business Regulatory Revisions – Passage


Passage of the bill that would give the Small Business Administration new authority to ensure that federal agencies comply with a 1980 law requiring that they be flexible in taking regulatory actions that affect small businesses, including by getting more directly involved with an agency's reviews of proposed rules and requiring SBA to convene panels of small entities to review rules proposals. The bill also would expand the review that federal agencies must conduct of regulations affecting small businesses to also evaluate the "indirect" costs of such rules.

Note: A "nay" was a vote in support of the president's position.
