Another day in Olympia to advocate for small business issues given bills proposed, dropped and in process.
Ongoing bulletin messages on proposed legislation and tax impacts to business/our members.
Transportation presentations throughout the year on changes, tolling, etc., and communicate to members.
Work and develop policy positions with the Southsound Chamber of Commerce Legislative Coalition and the East King County Chamber of Commerce Legislative Coalition that speak to our member’s business needs.  This requires ongoing communication with the coalition and business members.
Prioritized Renton Chamber legislative priorities and impact to business.
Legislative Reception to enable Chamber members to hear from incumbents and candidates.
