Washington, D.C. – Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council president & CEO Karen Kerrigan issued the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s executive order to comprehensively reorganize the executive branch of the federal government:
“A comprehensive review and reorganization of the federal government are long overdue. There is overlap and redundancy within federal agencies and programs, and there is significant opportunity for government to operate more efficiently. For the most part, the federal government is a bloated mess. Almost everyone agrees that the federal government can and should operate better, and wasteful spending must be cut. Small business owners will have innovative ideas to share during this effort, and I applaud President Trump for opening up the process to suggestions from the public.
“Entrepreneurs are forced to re-evaluate their spending, operations, human capital deployment and the efficiency of their business models on a frequent basis. It only makes sense that government is required to do the same. A leaner and modern federal government will improve how it interacts with small businesses, and save them money. The best way our government can assist entrepreneurs is to operate efficiently and not undermine their work to succeed and grow. President Trump’s executive order to reorganize and modernize the federal government is an opportunity to achieve that, and small business owners look forward to seeing and experiencing the results.”
