IDFA Co-Sponsors White House Small Business Leadership Briefing

Sep 05, 2012

IDFA has joined 17 other organizations to sponsor a small business leadership briefing by Mike Boots, chief of staff for Nancy Sutley, chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, on September 17. Boots will provide an update on the Environmental Protection Agency's regulatory process and discuss how pending standards, including provisions in the Clean Air Act, could affect small businesses.

The briefing, which will be held by conference call beginning at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time,  was organized by the Small Business Minority, a national advocacy group focused on problems facing America's small businesses. The briefing is free, but you must register to receive call-in information.

During the Clinton Administration, Boots served at EPA in the oceans, wetlands and watersheds program in Washington, D.C., and as a senior political advisor in California. He later served as the environmental and natural resources advisor to the governor of California and represented the interests of the state before Congress and the federal government.
