Plano Chamber Public Policy Newsletter
CHAMBER
The Plano Chamber of Commerce is beginning work on its Legislative Agenda for the 86 th Texas Legislature in 2019. Beginning in August, please be on the lookout for our member survey that we use to better understand your company’s policy concerns and priorities. We will also be reaching out to a variety of members to help add depth to our industry-specific priorities, such as health care, transportation and education. We look forward to working with all of you to ensure your Plano Chamber is an effective advocate for your Plano business community in the coming legislative session.

On the local level, we are excited that the Plano City Council is committed to putting the Envision Oak Point plan back on the agenda for an official vote in July. We will continue to support the plan and keep you updated as it moves forward.
