The Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce is the driving force for business prosperity in the Greater Peoria region and one of our guiding principles is to be the leading voice and advocate for business in the region. To accomplish that, we must be actively engaged in the legislative process. We need to speak for our members and encourage them to be a part of the legislative process at all levels of government.
We have three committees actively involved in this process along with our Board of Directors- Government Affairs, Transportation and Education and Workforce Development. The Peoria Area Chamber's Legislative Agenda can be found here.
