In order to develop its legislative platform, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce (Chamber), 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, guide our efforts toward developing the legislative platform. The Issues Management Council makes platform recommendations to the Board of Directors who is the final policy decision making body for the Chamber.
The Chamber's Legislative Platform covers fifteen areas.
• Economic Development
• Tax Increment Financing
• Transportation Infrastructure
• Business Climate
• Accessible Housing
• Drivers License Exams
• The State Budget
• Education and Workforce Development
• Local Government
• Health Care
• Nonmeandered Waters Compromise
• Diversity and Inclusivity
• Property and Business Owner Rights
• Tourism/Visitor Industry
• Initiative and Referendum
