Your Policy Resource

Economic development in the Region is closely connected to a variety of factors including the state budget, transportation, education, insurance and workforce development. Our public policy initiatives ensure that the Region’s business community will have a voice in important discussions about policy development.

We offer multiple resources to help you keep up with active legislation, find out what hearings and meetings are scheduled at the Capitol, and reach out to government leaders.
