In 2010, a pro-business administration and legislature was voted into Lansing to reinvent Michigan. Since then, the Michigan Chamber of Commerce has worked aggressively with our elected officials to pass legislation favorable to free enterprise and to defeat legislation and ballot proposals that would have been detrimental to Michigan’s economic health and overall turnaround.

Michigan's leading statewide business advocacy organization is on the job every day, fighting for job providers in the legislative and political process. The Chamber’s lobbyists champion member business interests, working against legislation that is anti-business and strongly supporting pro-business regulatory and legislative outcomes.
