More Than 1,400 Regulatory Accountability Act Letters Sent to Sen. Nelson

You Did It!

We tallied our final results for the Regulatory Accountability Act letters sent to Senator Nelson and you sent more than 1,400. That is 1,300 over our goal and thanks to you, the business community’s voice for needed federal regulatory reform is being heard. But, we will not stop fighting until the bill gets a vote on the Senate floor and passes.

We will keep you informed of what is happening with this legislation, and should your hear directly from Senator Nelson that he is with us, please let us know.

Thank you all for your help in this endeavor.

Florida Chamber’s Washington, D.C. Fly-In Centers Discussions on Trade, Jobs, Zika and More

Florida Chamber of Commerce members recently returned from a recent Washington, D.C.“Fly-In” supporting private-sector job creation, pushing back against bureaucratic red tape and emphasizing the importance of protecting Floridians from the Zika virus.

The Florida Chamber’s D.C. Fly-In included meetings with members of the Florida Congressional Delegation, including Senator Bill Nelson, Senator Marco Rubio, Congressman Vern Buchanan, and others. Additionally, the Florida Chamber Foundation presented Florida 2030, a two-year research program that is helping stimulate strategic thinking about Florida’s future, during a group presentation to the Florida’s Congressional Delegation.

It’s important for Florida to be represented at the federal level so that the voices of Florida job creators are heard. The Florida Chamber discussed the issues you said were important to your business, including: the Department of Labor’s Overtime Rule, the EPA’s Waters of the U.S. Rule and Clean Power Plan, the Regulatory Accountability Act, transportation infrastructure, the Trans Pacific Partnership and more.

There are several ways to learn more about, and get involved with, the Florida Chamber’s efforts:
