The mission of the Government Affairs Committee is to promote the growth and development of the regional business community through: the advocacy of positive and permanent business friendly government laws and regulations; effective communication with our elected officials; and, development of strategic partnerships to accomplish these objectives.
The businesses that comprise our membership face numerous obstacles; such as rapidly rising health-care costs, an overly burdensome tax structure, a costly legal environment, and unfair business practices.
Recognizing these challenges, a Legislative Agenda is drafted by the Government Affairs Committee. Using this agenda as a guide the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce monitors and reviews any legislative action that will impact the business community. This agenda is also utilized to both educate the full Chamber Membership as well as the Legislative Delegation of issues that are important to a strong and prosperous business economy.
