ADA, others support Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Act
April 10, 2017
— The ADA has joined with more than 100 organizations in supporting the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act.
The bipartisan legislation, H.R. 33 in the House and S. 584 in the Senate, was introduced by Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, and Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla. It would reform the regulatory process to ensure that all federal agencies appropriately consider the impact of their rules on small businesses.
In an April 3 letter
, the coalition urged Congress to pass the legislation to amend the Regulatory Flexibility Act, which federal agencies tend to interpret in widely divergent ways. By reforming the Regulatory Flexability Act, federal agencies would be required to issue "smarter regulations that minimize inefficiencies and unnecessary burdens while still protecting public health, worker safety and the environment."
