Business Issues Discussed with Legislators at Luncheon
More than 130 Chamber and community members met with federal and state lawmakers on June 29th at the City Club of Rock Hill to discuss current and upcoming issues affecting York County. The event, which was primarily sponsored by Comporium, offered an excellent opportunity for business representatives to exchange information with legislators at the state and federal levels.

Congressman Mick Mulvaney served as the keynote speaker for the luncheon, providing an update on this year's legislative session in Washington. Luncheon attendees were provided important and helpful information on state legislative issues from Senator Wes Hayes and Senator-Elect Wes Climer, along with state Reps. Gary Simrill, Tommy Pope, and Raye Felder.

Also at the event, Sen. Hayes was recognized by his fellow state legislators for his many years and quality of service as an elected representative of York County at the statehouse. 

As the voice for the business community, the York County Regional Chamber is committed to promoting open dialogue and partnership between elected officials and the business community. For more information about the Legislative event, please contact the Chamber's community relations vice president, Krimson Wilson.
