Washington state has a new representative on the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Regional Regulatory Fairness Board.

Christine V. Williams, small business owner and managing partner of Outlook Law LLC in Alaska, will represent Region X, comprised of Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Oregon. She is also an adjunct law professor of government contracting at Seattle University School of Law’s Alaska campus.

Regional Regulatory Fairness Boards in all 10 of SBA’s regions represent the voice of small businesses on regulatory fairness.  Each board is comprised of five small business owners, and serves as a resource and point of contact for small business owners who believe they have experienced unfair regulatory enforcement and compliance actions.

The board members advise the National Ombudsman and Assistant Administrator for Regulatory Enforcement Fairness, Nathan J. Miller, on matters of concern to small businesses related to federal regulatory enforcement actions, and report instances of unfair, excessive enforcement actions taken by federal regulators.
