Chamber Businesses Advocate to Legislators

Movements and conclusions happen quickly in a "Short Session" of the Washington Legislature.  Already in the middle of the session, legislation is passing one house (House or Senate) or the other.

Although the Chamber's lobbyist, Michael Transue, has been actively representing the Chamber's 2014 Legislative Agenda, legislators continue to ask for contacts from the citizens and businesses of their districts.

Yesterday, business representatives from the Chamber's membership held a forum with legislators representing districts wholly or partially in Pierce County. The forum, lead and moderated by Michael Transue, reinforced the Chamber's 2014 Legislative Agenda. Legislators responded with a thumbnail description of the current status of the issues advocated by the Chamber.

Business representatives also asked legislators about specific agenda items and those issues closest and impacting their businesses.  Several business representatives took advantage of the opportunity to schedule appointments with their own legislators either before the Chamber's event or after.
