The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce is committed to keeping our region competitive and improving the business climate. Through the legislative process, the Chamber works on behalf of its members to advocate for policies that contribute to the growth and prosperity of Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties.
This year, we focused on the following key areas at the State House:
- Infrastructure and Transportation
- Economic Development
- Military Base Retention and Expansion
The 2015 session is the first of a two part session that will continue in January 2016. While our number one issue – permanent funding for infrastructure – did not pass this year, we will continue to work between July and January to convince legislatures to pass the infrastructure bill waiting on the Senate calendar.
