Message from the President
Earlier this week, we observed Memorial Day. Elmer Davis once famously said, "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave."

Anyone that knows the State Chamber, understands that our membership is comprised of businesses representing every imaginable industry and of every size. And, many of our small business members struggle to offer competitive benefits packages to attract and retain employees. It was heartening, therefore, to see Congress move closer to enacting The Secure Act (as it is known in the U.S. House). 

Legislative Priority
HB110, the bill that would legalize recreational marijuana, will be heard in the House Revenue and Finance Committee on Wednesday, June 5, at 2:30 p.m. Those members who have concerns over what legalized marijuana will mean to their business and their employees should come to Dover and tell committee members about the impact this legislation will have if passed.

When it comes right down to it, it’s all about jobs. Today’s economic recovery approach must be more innovative than ever. And in every state and country, competition is fierce not only to create more places to work, but to retain existing jobs and create an environment that helps grow local businesses as well.

From Town Square Delaware

The evaluation of purchasing power in Delaware comes from a new assessment of Bureau of Economic Analysis data produced by 24/7 Wall Street that shows, not surprisingly, that a dollar goes a lot longer in places like Alabama than it does in California.
