About Small Business Advisory Committees

Small Business and Local Government (SBACs) Advisory Committees provide small businesses and small local governments in Texas with a voice in the regulatory process and help promote environmental quality.

The TCEQ coordinates meetings where SBAC members comment on existing and proposed environmental rules, policies, and programs and their effects on small businesses and small local governments. SBACs also serve as forums to educate the regulated community on environmental rules and how to comply with them.

Members are volunteers and membership is open to all interested persons such as:

  • small business owners,
  • environmental consultants,
  • representatives of trade associations, and
  • representatives of governmental organizations.

Information from meetings is passed on to members of the state's small business Compliance Advisory Panel to ensure that the needs of all Texas businesses are heard.
