Issues for Legislative Action


Every year the Howard County Chamber publishes its Issues for Legislative Action as a tool to advocate on behalf of businesses on public policy issues. 

Issues for Legislative Action 2018

The 2018 edition of the document was released on October 29, 2017 at the annual Legislative Preview Breakfast.

The Chamber’s Legislative Committee worked diligently to identify the most critical public policy issues and offer some proactive suggestions. The Chamber wants this document to stay close at hand for elected officials and members and to serve as a reference that clarifies and amplifies the voice of business. It is intended to serve as a starting point for ongoing discussions throughout the year.
