News from the GCVCC Business Legislative Advocacy Committee
Recommendations sent to the Governor recently seemed to suggest that the business community should be the safety net to mitigate the unprecedented outcomes of this natural disaster and the government’s response.

To that end, the GCVCC joined a coalition of advocacy organizations that respectfully disagreed with the premise of the Labor Fed’s letter that private sector should shoulder this burden.
