Public Policy Council

The Public Policy Council is responsible for researching, vetting and making recommendations to the Chamber Board of Directors on proposed legislation and administrative codes as well as setting a legislative agenda for the two-year session.  This group is made up of volunteers from a diverse array of service, manufacturers, telecommunication, transportation, utility and governmental organizations.

Legislative agenda
Every two years, the Chamber’s Public Policy Council sets a legislative agenda based on conversation and debate with Chamber members and leading area experts.  The agenda outlines the Chamber’s local, state and federal public policy priorities.

Legislative scorecards
Annually, we work collaboratively with the Northeast Wisconsin Chamber Coalition (NEWCC) to compile legislative scorecards of how legislators voted on business issues of relevance to our membership and legislative agenda.
