2010 Legislative Forum

LINCOLN – The Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry, in cooperation with local chambers of commerce across the state, will present its annual legislative forums in the coming weeks.

The forums are conducted by State Chamber staff and are held every autumn to gather input from the business community on issues of concern. Members of the State Chamber and local chambers of commerce, as well as members of the news media, are encouraged to attend.

State senators and legislative candidates in each legislative district have been invited to the forums.

This year’s forums will focus on the Legislature’s 2010 session – including developments in the areas of taxes, labor law, workers’ compensation costs, and economic development programs. The forums will also look at how Nebraska fares in several economic competitiveness rankings.

State Chamber President Barry L. Kennedy said: “The economy continues to be the most pressing issue facing lawmakers and employers. These forums provide a timely opportunity for business leaders and others in the community to learn about key concerns that will be addressed by state and federal policymakers.”

The Legislative Forum will be held in Ord on Tuesday, October 5th at the Ord Area Chamber of Commerce Office at noon. (To make reservations, or for more information, contact the Chamber office at 308.728.7875).

The State Chamber is Nebraska’s largest business association, representing individuals, large and small companies, other associations, and local chambers of commerce. The State Chamber has served as the voice of Nebraska’s business community for more than 98 years.
