Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce 2018 Legislative Platform

In order to develop its legislative platform, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, through its Issues Management Council, conducts research, hears presentations and surveys its members about issues affecting business. These efforts, combined with actively following and monitoring legislative activity since the close of last session, guide our efforts toward developing the platform for the upcoming session. The platform is reviewed, edited and approved by the Issues Management Council and forwarded to the Chamber Executive Committee for review and adoption. Due to a unique Chamber Board calendar this year, Board approval may not be feasible before the start of session, but the platform may be affirmed at the January 2018 meeting. . .
