Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

13 CFR Ch. I

Semiannual Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: The Regulatory Flexibility Act and Executive Order 12866 
require each agency to publish semiannually an inventory of all current 
and projected rulemakings; a review of existing regulations, 
regulations expected to be developed during the next 12 months; and 
those regulations completed since the last publication of the agency's 
regulatory agenda (agenda). SBA is publishing this agenda to provide 
the public with notice about the Agency's regulatory activities and to 
provide specific information about those activities. This information 
will promote the public's participation in SBA's regulatory activities.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information about 
specific regulatory actions listed in the agenda, you should direct 
your comments and inquiries to the appropriate agency contact 
identified in each entry. For general information about the agenda, you 
should direct your comments or inquiries to Martin ``Sparky'' Conrey, 
Assistant General Counsel for Legislation and Appropriations, U.S. 
Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street SW., Washington, DC 
20416, (202) 619-0638.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This agenda announces the proposed 
regulatory actions that SBA plans for the next 12 months and those that 
were completed since the spring 2004 edition. Executive Order 12866 and 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act require the semiannual publication in 
the Federal Register of an agenda of regulations. As permitted by law, 
SBA is combining the publication of its agendas and conforming them to 
the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions 
format developed by the Regulatory Information Service Center.

     SBA's agenda is grouped according to prerulemaking, proposed 
rules, final rules, and rulemaking actions completed since the 
spring 2004 agenda. The purpose of the agenda is to provide 
information to the public on regulations currently under review, 
being proposed, and regulations completed or withdrawn by SBA. The 
agenda is intended to facilitate comments and views by interested 
members of the public. SBA encourages public participation through 
www.regulations.gov by placing SBA rules on that website and 
encouraging the public to submit comments through that medium. SBA 
also provides a link from www.sba.gov to the website.

     Publication of proposed rulemaking actions in the agenda does 
not impose any obligation on SBA to take any final action with 
regard to any specific item. Furthermore, SBA is not precluded from 
rulemaking activities that are not listed in this agenda. The dates 
listed in the timetables for specific actions are estimates and are 
not commitments to act on or by the particular date. SBA's 
regulations promote statutory mandates and Presidential directives 
linked to SBA's goals to improve the economic environment for small 
business, increase small business success by bridging competitive 
opportunity gaps, restore homes and businesses affected by 
disaster, and to operate and manage SBA's programs and resources 
efficiently and effectively.

     This edition of the agenda also includes SBA's regulatory 
plan. This plan contains the Agency's most important significant 
regulatory actions and appears in part II of this issue of the 
Federal Register. The regulatory plan entries are listed in the 
table of contents below and are denoted by a bracketed bold 
reference, which directs the reader to the appropriate sequence 
number in part II.

Administrator.

Abstract: This Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) seeks 
comments on a number of issues pertaining to SBA's size standards, such 
as areas to simplify size standards and alternative calculations of the 
employment size of businesses. These comments will assist SBA with its 
examination on how it can restructure and simplify size standards. The 
ANPRM also seeks comment on the participation in the Small Business 
Innovation Research Program by businesses that are majority-owned by 
venture capital companies (VCC). Specifically, SBA seeks comment on 
whether the Agency should provide an exclusion from affiliation with 
VCCs in determining small business eligibility for this program.
