Kentucky Chamber releases 2017 federal agenda
On Monday, the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce has released a federal agenda detailing the national legislative priorities of the business community.
The Kentucky Chamber not only advocates on behalf of business at the state level, but also in the nation’s capital where congressional and executive-branch decisions have a direct impact on Kentucky businesses.
Leading into the agenda, the Chamber states that free enterprise creates jobs, opportunity and a successful business climate. The Kentucky Chamber seeks to advocate for federal policies that will result in economic growth, fewer government regulations and encourage policymakers to expand – not limit – job growth and economic opportunity through the decisions they make.
Areas of focus in the federal agenda include tax and entitlement reform, health care, education, overtime regulation, energy and environment, international trade, immigration, legal reform and more.
