Van Duyne's One-Stop Shop for Small Business Compliance Act of 2021 Passes on the House Floor
Rep. Delgado and I led the bipartisan One-Stop Shop for Small Business Compliance Act of 2021 (H.R. 4877), to help small businesses navigate the web of federal regulations governing their business operations. This bill passed the House unanimously today.
Now more than ever, we must pursue commonsense legislation that allows small businesses to thrive in our recovering economy. Often times, small businesses are unaware of their new responsibilities as federal laws are updated. The One-Stop Shop for Small Business Compliance Act of 2021 will consolidate the resources necessary to navigate the seemingly never-ending web of bureaucratic red tape. Passing this bill is a win for small businesses and I was pleased to work with Rep. Delgado to bring this commonsense legislation to light.
“We should be doing everything in our power to support small businesses in New York and across the country by making the resources available to them clear and easy to access,” said Rep. Delgado. “I am proud that our bipartisan bill, the One-Stop Shop for Small Business Compliance Act, has passed the House. We are one step closer to a new resource that will support small businesses and self-owned employers. I thank Congresswoman Van Duyne for her partnership on this legislation and look forward to continuing our work together to get this bill to the President’s desk.”
Current law requires federal agencies to publish small business compliance guides for certain regulations. However, these guides are housed on different agency websites, making it nearly impossible for small businesses to find and utilize them. The One-Stop Shop for Small Business Compliance Act of 2021 creates a centralized, online “one-stop shop” for small business owners. The online clearinghouse would also list contact information for the appropriate agency staff who could provide regulatory assistance to small businesses.
The One-Stop Shop for Small Businesses Compliance Act of 2021 was supported by majority and minority committee staff. It passed both committees and the House by voice vote last year.
