Generally, the legislative priorities of a Chamber of Commerce are focused on improving the business climate. This often includes reducing tax burdens on businesses and improving access to workers for business growth. But the interests of social services agencies – including expungement of criminal records, managed growth, public transportation, and education – are important to businesses as well. Jason Zacher, Senior Vice President of Business Advocacy with the Greenville Chamber and the Upstate Chamber Coalition joins us to discuss the connections. Derek Lewis of Greenville First Steps interviews.
