RACC Public Affairs & Legislative Agenda
Each year in advance of the “long” Oregon Legislative Session with input from professional staff and its government affairs team, the chamber’s board of directors approves a two-year public affairs and legislative agenda. Advanced knowledge of what to expect during upcoming sessions, and pre-session positions allow the chamber to weigh in with position papers, testimony, calls to action and outreach to legislators at a moment’s notice during the session.
Implementation of its public affairs and legislative agenda ensures the chamber represents business during state and federal sessions promptly and in the best manner possible. The chamber still retains the ability to review unanticipated legislation or specific issues at the request of members and take action in a timely fashion.
Examples of legislation RACC monitored and took action on during previous sessions can be found under “Calls to Action” and “RACC Issues & Positions” pages.
