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 and Talent
- Military Base Retention and Expansion
The Chamber’s advocacy efforts at the State House are led by Chamber Lobbyist, George Ramsey, who is at the State House each day the legislature is in session, advocating on behalf of the region’s business community.
The 2016 session, the second of a two part session, ended in June 2016. View 2016 Legislative Agenda & Guiding Principals
