Legislative Committee
Share |

The Legislative Committee advocates on behalf of Hispanic businesses on several legislative issues. Our legislative priorities include:

  • Supporting a competitive business climate in Maryland, including getting rid of W/MBE sub-goals which negatively affect Hispanic firms and discourage competition among minority contractors
  • Encouraging job growth and workforce development in Maryland
  • Supporting small businesses
  • Representing minorities in state government
  • Securing funding to Minority Chambers of Commerce to support programs that:
    • help minority businesses grow enough to hire employees
    • assist minority companies in obtaining W/MBE certification

Through it all, the Legislative Committee helps the Chamber navigate through all of the briefings, hearings, maze of law, budgetary matters and procurement opportunities. Members have the opportunity to be involved by attending hearings, briefings and meetings with decision makers. During the Legislative Session, our committee is active, speaking to legislators and State and local officials, advocating on our behalf, ensuring that we are being represented and receiving the most up to date information on issues that matter the most to us. During the interim, the Legislative Committee has established the relationships within State and local government to remain informed of issues and opportunities affecting your interests.
