EPA Hosts Stakeholder Meeting Seeking Input on Federal Regulations

April 2017 - EPA’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU), in implementing Executive Order (EO) 13777: Enforcing the Regulatory Agenda, is hosting a meeting to consult with external stakeholders, to hear which rules and regulations our stakeholders believe should be repealed, replaced, or modified, consistent with applicable law.

The EO, signed February 24, 2017 Exit the TCEQ, establishes the “policy of the United States to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens placed on the American people.” Among other things, it requires each agency to create a Regulatory Reform Task Force to evaluate existing regulations and to identify regulations that should be repealed, replaced or modified. The meeting will afford the EPA an opportunity to listen and learn directly from those impacted by EPA regulations. 

The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 20, 2017, from 12:30pm to 3:30pm Eastern DST via webinar. Those who wish to participate must contact Joan B. Rogers (202-564-6568 or rogers.joanb@epa.gov), not later than Friday, April 14, 2017. Requests made beyond the webinar capacity and/or after April 17, 2017 might not be able to be accommodated. 

If you would like to provide a four minute “oral presentation” on a particular regulation, please let Joan Rogers know by Friday, April 14 so she can schedule your slot. EPA requests that commenters be as specific as possible, and include any supporting data or other information.
