We represent you at the local, state and national levels of government. Whether you are a small business with one employee, or a large corporation, the Chamber helps provide you with access to government officials and keeps you informed on pending legislation.
Just this week we your Chamber took action on two very important issues for business and our community/region:
1 – Opposed DOL Overtime Rule Proposal
On Tuesday, April 26th we signed on to a letter to Congress in support of the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act. The nearly 400 chambers that signed the letter sent an emphatic statement to Congress that the DOL’s proposed overtime rule is bad for business, bad for employees, and needs to be reconsidered. See below for more on the letter and how you can contact Congress to share your concern.Read More
2 – Promoted & Supported Robins Air Force Base in Washington, DC
Members of Georgia’s congressional delegation hosted a Robins Air Force Base breakfast at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center on Wednesday, April 27, 2016. The Georgia Congressional delegation members were joined at the Washington, D.C., event by leaders of Robins Air Force Base and the surrounding communities to discuss both the military and economic value of Robins Air Force Base to Georgia and our national defense. Keynote remarks were delivered by former U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss.
The meeting follows a series of Georgia- and D.C.-based meetings with the Georgia Congressional delegation and senior Pentagon officials from each of the branches of the armed services to discuss the importance of Georgia-based equities and assets and the critical roles each play in our national defense.Read More
