The Chamber submits interim charges

The 85th Texas Legislative Sessions was one of the toughest and most controversial yet. Nonetheless, your Chamber staff worked tirelessly with lawmakers and partners to get good bills across the finish line and block bills that would have been harmful to our community. However, it will not stop there.

Since the close of the special session, Chamber staff have analyzed the bills signed into law as well as those that did not make the cut and have engaged our members to explain the implications for San Antonio. Over the past few weeks, the Chamber has worked with members to develop and submit thoughtful and necessary interim charges to both the House and the Senate. Many of the interim charges submitted address the overarching goal of keeping San Antonio competitive and open for business, including the need to expand multimodal transportation networks, promote workforce development opportunities, and foster water development.

The Chamber is committed to building momentum for policies that enable the business community to reach its full potential. We thank our Chamber councils and committees for their collaboration in developing the interim charges.  We understand the integral role our state leaders play in ensuring San Antonio maintains a business friendly climate and thriving economy. We will work closely with our Bexar County delegation to ensure our Chamber priorities remain on the forefront during the interim.

For any questions about the interim charges, please contact Stephanie Reyes, Vice Preside of Public Affairs at 210 229 2162 or at sreyes@sachamber.org
