The Small Business Advisory Act requires every State agency to make available on the World Wide Web a small business advisory page.

The Auditor General’s Office will use this page to provide small businesses with a plain language explanation of any proposed or adopted rule or new legislation administered by us that affects small businesses. Any such explanation will remain posted for a minimum of 6 months.

Small businesses are also directed to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunities’ First Stop Business Information Center, which operates as a central clearinghouse, notifying the small business community of each State agency’s rulemakings and changes in requirements affecting small businesses. Information concerning the First Stop Business Information Center can be found on the World Wide Web at
