Chamber provides an end of session legislative update

Posted by Maggie Kost on Jun 06, 2014

The 2014 legislative session ended on Friday, May 16, and there were a number of wins as well as several missed opportunities on Chamber legislative priorities. Among the measures that crossed the finish line were a transportation funding ballot initiative, changes to the state’s unemployment insurance system, and an increased commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship through additional funding for the Missouri Technology Corporation.

The Chamber staff maintains an active presence in the capitol each week, providing testimony and ensuring that legislators are aware of the issues impacting business in our region. We’ve also provided a number of opportunities for you to interact directly with legislators both here and in Jefferson City.
