2016 Legislative Agenda

The 2016 Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce Legislative Agenda is a guide to our public policy positions. We share it with all of our elected officials and use it as a tool when we travel to Raleigh or Washington DC on your behalf. We invite you to read and use this document so that our business community may have a unified voice when advocating for these important issues.
