U.S. Chamber launching weekly series on American business issues

Energy, infrastructure, health care and tax reform headline the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s list of the country's top areas needing critical focus as the chamber launches its “State of American Business Issue Series.”

Tom Donohue, who serves as president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber, recently presented the chamber’s annual State of American Business address in Washington, D.C, a posting on the chamber's website said. Stipulating that the nation requires faster growth, Donohue shared his prediction that the nation would experience between 2 and 2.5 percent economic growth during 2017.

He outlined the American Growth Agenda to assist businesses and consumers in accelerating expansion for the purpose of creating jobs and raising pay. Although Donohue spoke to a capacity crowd gathered for the event, the U.S. Chamber acknowledged that the continuing weekly series will allow deeper access for individual topics in need of addressing.

Offering consumers a preview of what’s in store for the series, the U.S. Chamber said in the posting that it will feature a different policy issue once weekly, accompanied by potential solutions. After each installment, the organization will host a Facebook Live chat with one of its experts equipped to field questions from constituents.

“We hope this will be useful to educating the public, lawmakers, and federal officials about concrete solutions for improving our roads and bridges, producing more American energy, reforming our complicated tax system, and unleashing our economic potential,” the chamber said.
