Advocacy and Legislation

Our committee’s focus is, as a bipartisan unit, to influence the introduction, enactment, or modification of legislation on behalf of our business members and our community.

We meet with our legislators, share our views on an issue, and ask them to support us.

The Kirkland Chamber of Commerce Advocacy and Legislature committee is a member of the East King County Chambers of Commerce Legislative Coalition.  It advocates for critical business legislation for the Eastside of Seattle.

The Coalition brings together ten chambers of commerce representing the Eastside business community and enables these chambers to speak with a unified voice on legislative issues. The Coalition develops a variety of annual publications and brings lawmakers and business leaders together through events and activities.

Our most important projects focus on the following:

  • Legislation
  • Transportation & Infrastructure
  • Economic Growth
  • Education & Workforce
  • Environmental Issues
  • Good Government
