What Government Regulation Would You Change?

r3 Initiative to reform Federal regulatory burden on small businessesIs some Federal government regulation causing headaches for your business?  Think the paperwork could be streamlined to cut down on red tape? 

Or maybe you think a regulation is being too rigidly administered by an agency — to the point of being un-business-friendly.

Don’t just grouse about it.  Do something about it.  

Between now and December 31, 2007 the SBA’s Office of Advocacy is taking nominations for which Federal government agency rules and regulatory programs to reform.

It’s all part of the “r3″ initiative: the regulatory review and reform initiative.  It partially arose out of a General Accounting Office study published earlier this year that found that Federal agencies often do not include members of the public in reviewing their own agency’s regulatory impact.  The “r3″ initiative is an attempt to include business owners in the process of identifying which Federal regulations need reform, and exactly what elements should be changed and how.
