The Chamber’s Advocacy Committee meets on your behalf to survey the current legislative landscape and the great number of bills being considered that could have significant impact on your business. Understanding that the KV Chamber represents a diversity of views on any given policy issue, it is the mission of the Advocacy Committee to keep you informed of proposed legislation and aware of the opportunities for members to participate in the legislative process. It is also our aim to respectfully advocate for those positions in which the Chamber community is in substantial agreement.
It is imperative that the business community be engaged in the process so that the legislative decisions that are ultimately made are ones that are informed by our testimony and experience and cognizant of their real impacts to our businesses and our employees.
We encourage you to stay tuned to these updates, reach out to us with any questions, and respectfully engage with your government. Our strongest position in today’s reality, together as a Chamber and also as individuals representing our businesses, is to be a clear, thoughtful, and respectful voice in our public debates, relying on the strength of facts and real world experience, and recognizing the good intentions around the table which motivate the majority of those involved in the legislative process.
