Nicolas Owens, the National Ombudsman for the U.S. Small Business Administration, will host a second annual meeting with business and trade leaders on March 12. The event in Washington D.C. is intended to solicit feedback on unfair or excessive federal regulatory enforcement that impacts trade groups and small businesses nationwide. "The first national hearing was a great success, as groups explained the challenges their small business members face when trying to comply with regulations within their respective industries," said SBA National Ombudsman Nicholas Owens. The national hearing will also function as an information session on how SBA's Office of the National Ombudsman serves as troubleshooter for the nation's small businesses. (PR Newswire.)
