Governmental Affairs

 

As the local voice of business, the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to keeping the Katy Area competitive, continuously improving the business climate, and advancing policies that contribute to a sustainable, healthy, thriving community.

The Katy Area Chamber primarily will focus its government affairs activities on efforts that promote a healthy business climate. The Chamber also will work with local, state and federal officials to pursue policies, legislation and regulations that support the Katy Area's outstanding quality of life (robust educational opportunities, healthcare assets and transportation/infrastructure). The Katy Area Chamber government affairs agenda will include hosting events and educating members on the impact of current policy, legislative and regulatory issues.  We also will continue to build strong relationships with our community partners and government leaders to support a healthy business climate.

Through our government affairs activities, the Katy Area Chamber will:

  • Be the recognized expert voice on policy issues impacting businesses in the Katy Area;
  • Inform Katy Area Chamber members of, and work towards, internal consensus to develop advocacy positions on business-related regulatory and legislative issues;
  • Provide input on business-related policies through actions - including engagement with government officials, and written comments and testimony - on regulatory and legislative matters that potentially impact the Katy Area.
