Chamber Advocacy Documents

The Chamber spends much time and effort meeting with elected officials, writing letters on proposed regulations, and testifying on legislation to effectively advocate the business position on pending public policy issues. Copies of our letters, testimony presented, and other examples of our efforts are available here for members to review and to gain a better understanding of how the chamber works on our members’ behalf.
