Legislative Agenda

Through the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce’s Advocacy Committee – a representative group of different businesses and industries around Lakeland – members meet monthly to discuss and actively monitors all levels of government.

Each year, staff and Lakeland Chamber Advocacy Committee members carefully assess issues our city is facing and develop our Legislative Agenda based on feedback from our members, partners in the community, local/state government, and educational institutions.

Through interviews, research, discussion, and debate, we develop positions and advocate at all levels of government and throughout the business community. After careful review of the issues, the Lakeland Chamber’s Advocacy Committee creates and finalizes the Legislative Agenda which is approved by the Chamber's Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

Below, you will find our most recent Chamber Legislative Agenda as well as other resolutions approved by the Chamber.
