Kevin L. Bromberg, Assistant Chief Counsel for Environmental Policy for the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Office of Advocacy, will retire from federal service on January 3, 2020. Bromberg served two terms in the Office of Advocacy, from 1979 to 1991 and from 1994 to the present. Prior to rejoining the Office of Advocacy in 1994, Bromberg represented small business trade associations in regulatory matters dealing with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). He was counsel for the Small Business Coalition for a Responsible Toxic Release Inventory and executive director of the Industry Coalition for a Workable Clean Air Program. Bromberg founded the first Advocacy Roundtable, the Environmental Roundtable, in 1990. He is the primary author of three petitions for regulatory relief to EPA, all of which EPA granted. Bromberg has also worked for EPA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Bromberg was instrumental in developing the procedures for implementation of EPA panels under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) and has represented the Office of Advocacy in more than 30 EPA SBREFA panels.
Kevin will be sorely missed. He has been a relentless and exceedingly effective advocate for small business for decades. Kevin’s zealous pursuit of the facts -- scientific, economic, and otherwise -- and his impressive and creative legal advocacy have served businesses well. Kevin’s tireless advocacy and efforts to enhance regulatory transparency, most visibly apparent in forming the Environmental Roundtable, have made Kevin one of the most respected, effective, and dedicated attorneys of his time. Thanks for all you have contributed, Kevin, and our best to you in your new endeavors.
