After months of discussion with industry, business, education and other community leaders, The Chamber’s legislative committee presented the 2012 Federal Agenda, which the board approved at the December meeting.
The Agenda is prepared ahead of the annual SA to DC trip, scheduled for February 26-28, 2012, and helps to outline the year’s priorities in addressing federal issues. This year, the Agenda includes priorities in 17 areas including: aerospace, community development, energy and environment, health care and biosciences, higher education, hospitality and tourism, information technology, immigration and homeland security, labor, manufacturing, military affairs, public education, regulatory reform, small business, transportation, water, and workforce.
The SA to DC trip is one of the largest advocacy groups to annually visit Washington, D.C. from any major metropolitan city, and helps the community send a powerful message to our legislators that our community and business leaders are unified in our priorities for federal issues.
