Advocating for Lawrence
At the end of each calendar year, The Chamber sets its legislative priorities at the state and federal level. With the help of the Public Policy Task Force, comprised of a group of Chamber members interested in government and communities affairs, and using guiding principles for advocacy and policy evaluation, The Chamber creates its priorities for the upcoming year.
