Description

Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity; small business resource for changes in the law. Requires the Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (the Department) to publish on its website, by November 1 of each year, a resource to assist small businesses in the Commonwealth to navigate recent changes in the law impacting small businesses. The bill requires each state agency to submit to the Department, by September 1 of each year, a list of all statutory or regulatory changes that have become effective in the previous fiscal year or are known to become effective in the current fiscal year that will impact the operations and labor requirements of a broad spectrum of small businesses in the Commonwealth. The bill provides that each state agency is only responsible for submitting statutory and regulatory changes that the state agency is responsible for implementing or enforcing and requires the responsible state agency to include a summary of the change, written in layman's terms, and contact information for the agency. If a state agency determines it is not responsible for any such statutory or regulatory changes, the bill requires such agency to notify the Department. The bill defines "statutory or regulatory change" to mean any act of assembly or any new regulation or amendment to an existing regulation that occurred as a result of an act of assembly. The bill requires the Interdepartmental Board to establish criteria that will be used by state agencies in identifying statutory and regulatory changes that will impact the operations and labor requirements of a broad spectrum of small businesses in the Commonwealth.
