The Small Business Advocate – February/ March 2013

The February-March edition of the Small Business Advocate (vol. 32, no. 2, edited by Rebecca Krafft) spotlights three new publications: the annual Report on the Regulatory Flexibility Act, which examines federal agencies’ progress in considering small businesses when making regulations; Small Business Profiles for the States and Territories, with extensive government data showing the status and importance of small business in each state; and the Small Business Economy, providing a broad statistical portrait of small business. The newsletter also reports on rules from the Environmental Protection Agency, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Food and Drug Administration, plus the makeup of the Small Business Committees in the 113th Congress.
