Chambers advocating for region's business agenda in D.C.
Four chambers of commerce from southern and southeastern Pennsylvania are in Washington, D.C., today, meeting with government officials and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Chambers and chamber members from Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading and York are participating in the annual bus trip organized by the chambers to the nation’s capital, known as Regional Business Advocacy Day.
The day’s events include a planned meeting with U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and U.S. Reps. Lou Barletta, Charlie Dent, Jim Gerlach, Tom Marino, Pat Meehan, Scott Perry and Joe Pitts, according to a schedule provided by the Harrisburg Regional Chamber.
The U.S. Chamber will brief the local delegations on its legislative priorities.
The Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce has participated in past years, but did not send a delegation this year, a spokeswoman said.
