“This document sets out the Chamber’s position on key issues that will likely be voted on in the 2nd Session of the 113th Congress, including reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank, reauthorization of federal transportation legislation, legislation to address the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund, repeal of the harmful medical device tax, passage of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014, and other important issues,” said Jason Simon, Director of Legislative Advocacy and Media at the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce.
“The Chamber stands ready to work with members of the Texas Congressional Delegation to develop fiscally sound, pro-business public policy that ensures that the business climate in Texas remains the strongest in the nation,” Simon said.
The 2014 Federal Priorities were developed over the course of numerous meetings of the Chamber’s Legislative Advocacy Committee and Federal Issues Task Force, whose membership spans the spectrum of North Texas businesses. And they were approved by the Chamber’s 64-member Board of Directors.
