Requests for Comments

Before the government implements changes to various compliance processes, agencies often solicit comments.  These solicitations offer industry opportunities to provide feedback on how proposed rule or process changes will impact your business.  AAFA often provides comments on behalf of the industry as a whole, but submitting comments specific to your company carry just as much weight.

Congress and many government agencies are soliciting comments on a range of issues that may affect your business.
