Chamber Legislative Preview Breakfast

 The Chamber hosted its annual Legislative Preview Breakfast last week at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbia.

Panelists Christopher A. Carroll (Legislative & Policy Director, Office of the Governor), Delegate Eric D. Ebersole, Maria Iannatuono (Director of Legislative & Regulatory Affairs for the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation), Delegate Trent Kittleman, and Christine V. Walters (FiveL Company) discussed what is ahead for the legislative agenda this session.

Once again, labor issues such as minimum wage, and work schedule issues will dominate.  Education, and transportation are also high on the list of visible subjects to again be debated.

The Chamber has published its 2018 Issues for Legislative Action which include issues in the categories of Labor, Employment & Healthcare, Budget, Finance & Taxation, Education & Workforce Development, Energy, Environment & Land Use, and Transportation.

The Chamber is the preeminent voice for the business community in Howard County, advocating for pro-business policy and free enterprise.
