Clark Hill Attorney Jane C. Luxton to Present at U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy Anniversary Symposium on Wednesday June 22, 2016 in Washington, DC

May 31, 2016

Washington, D.C. – Clark Hill Attorney Jane C. Luxton will be a panel member at the Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy Anniversary Symposium on Wednesday June 22, 2016 in Washington, DC. The topic of discussion is “Reducing the Burdens: Making Better Policies for Small Business.” The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (RFA) requires agencies to consider the impact of their proposed and final rules on small entities. The Small Business Regulatory Enforcement and Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA) strengthened this requirement by adding judicial review. Now, 36 years after the RFA gave agencies this duty, this panel asks “How has the RFA influenced agency decision-making?” Panelists will discuss examples of agency policy-making that have successfully incorporated small entity interests and others in which agencies could have better integrated the mission of the RFA into their decisions.

Jane C. Luxton is a member of Clark Hill’s Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Practice Group based in the Washington, DC office and heads its Administrative Law practice group. She has extensive experience in environmental, regulatory, policy, and litigation matters. Her practice includes advising clients on administrative law issues, including the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (“SBREFA”). Her experience includes appellate and government affairs work.
