Businesses are busy working on growing their companies. They often don’t have the time to stay abreast of the rapidly changing legislative environment or really understand the impact it may have on them daily. The Broken Arrow Chamber’s focus is be their advocate on local, state and federal level and ensure we have the best pro-growth business environment possible.
The Broken Arrow Chamber strives to be the leading voice to and for Broken Arrow businesses on legislative issues and advocate to ensure a pro-growth business environment. This agenda represents the top issues we believe impact the Broken Arrow business climate going into the 2020 Legislative session. Issues were identified by the Broken Arrow Chamber Legislative Committee through membership feedback, city leadership, educational partners and strategic partners’ agendas.
OneVoice is the regional advocacy effort lead by the Tulsa Regional Chamber. OneVoice includes more than 60 partners across the region, ranging from municipalities to peer chambers of commerce and community organizations. Through OneVoice, nine task forces identify and prioritize key issues every summer. In the fall, these issues are brought together at the Regional Legislative Summit, where attendees vote to define the top 10 state and top 10 federal issues. These priorities are then shared with state and federal legislators via the regionalOneVoice legislative agenda, announced before session begins each year.
This committee is tasked with developing a legislative agenda that represents our members. The committee meets on the second Friday of every month at the Chamber office at 8 a.m.
