    NYC Mayor Eric Adams took major steps to reduce burdens on and cut red tape for the city’s small businesses by announcing reforms to 118 city regulations. The reforms stem from Executive Order 2 (EO2) "Small Business Forward" — signed in January 2022 — that requires city agencies to review existing business regulations and ensure local businesses face fewer needless fines and penalties without jeopardizing public health or safety.
