Business Climate, Education, and Infrastructure Among the Key Areas of Focus
Gwinnett County, GA – January 13, 2022 – The Gwinnett Chamber has released its 2022 Public Policy Agenda as the Georgia General Assembly returns to session. Adopted by its Board of Directors last November, the agenda identifies policy issues that impact business at the local, regional, and state levels.
“The Chamber’s primary mission is to champion business,” said Nick Masino, President and CEO of the Gwinnett Chamber. “Establishing a public policy agenda and communicating with our legislators to ensure they are considering business with every decision they make is a key component to our success and we are looking forward to a productive session this year.”
The Chamber’s Public Policy Advisory Committee, the primary voice in advocating for members, advises and recommends positions on legislation that either support or detract from the Chamber’s public policy agenda.
Dean Collins, Founder and President of Axis Companies and the 2021 Vice Chair of the Gwinnett Chamber Public Policy Committee shared, “Among some of the notable changes from last year’s agenda are broadband accessibility and affordability and public-private initiatives to ease workforce demands. We also included support for the Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority’s five (5) Gwinnett transit projects considered for state funding in the Fiscal Year 2023 budget.”
Collins has passed the gavel for 2022 Vice Chair to Trey Ragsdale, Manager of Government and Community Affairs at Kaiser Permanente. Under Ragsdale’s leadership, the committee will continue its focus on preserving a free market economy, attracting business and investment to Gwinnett, and empowering businesses to grow and create jobs for Gwinnettians.
