The Longview Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting and protecting the interests of our Longview area businesses through investigating and supporting legislative initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels. Combining our local voice, 1100 strong, with other chambers across the state and nation, leads to successful and impactful representation.
Key areas that this Chamber stands behind are outlined in the policy statement section and cover: Employment Relations, Economic Development, Education, Energy and Environmental, General Business, Health Care, Immigration, Taxes and Spending, Tort Reform, and Transportation. To address these issues and provide face-to-face interaction and education, the Chamber hosts Advocacy Summits bringing in legislative representation and subject matter experts on the local, state, and federal levels. Lead by our Advocacy Committee, these programs address issues impacting business and currently residing on legislative dockets.
The Chamber continues sending area leaders and elected officials to Austin and Washington D.C. to be the voice of our members. To ensure participation in the voting process, the Chamber created LongviewVotes.Com. Visitors to this site can keep up with issues affecting business and submit letters directly to their elected officials. To further advance issues, the Chamber formed and maintains a general issues PAC.
