In 2002, Oklahoma become one of the first states to pass a regulatory flexibility law called the Oklahoma Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Act. The act creates an opportunity for small businesses to be in the making, or changing, of rules that negatively impact small business.
How It Works
- The Oklahoma Small Business Advocacy Committee, made up of 13 small business owners, reviews new rules, which may adversely impact small businesses and suggests less restrictive alternatives and/or creative, flexible means for business to comply to the agencies wherever possible. The committee can also assist businesses with concerns about existing rules.
- Small business owners can contact committee members directly or call the Department of Commerce.
