Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging participation in a hearing that will give small business owners and representatives of small business interest groups the opportunity to provide input directly to federal officials.

The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. on Mon., Oct. 29th at the Best Western Dunmar Inn in Evanston.

Enzi, who is cosponsoring the hearing with the Small Business Administration's (SBA) National Ombudsman Michael Barrera and the SBA's Wyoming District Office, said that the hearing will provide federal agencies with pertinent and practical information about how their practices affect small business and will provide a forum for the small business community to comment about federal compliance and enforcement activities.

"I believe this meeting will aid in the productive dialogue already begun by the SBA and other federal agencies with a stake in small business issues in Wyoming," said Enzi.

Enzi said the impact of regulations from federal agencies on small business and the role played by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) will be examined. Comments generated from the meeting will be used in a report to Congress that evaluates the enforcement activities of federal regulatory agencies and agency personnel.

SBA officials, trade associations and small businesses from Wyoming, Utah, Idaho and Montana will participate in the hearing.
