> Legislative coalition
The East King County Chambers of Commerce Legislative Coalition exists to bring together a unified legislative agenda to serve the best interests of the entire Eastside business community. The Coalition serves a vast geographic and economic region, and forges consensus on issues that define the region's vitality. This work is done through the collaborative efforts and shared resources of member chambers.

The Coalition represents the following Chambers of Commerce: Bellevue, Bothell, Issaquah, Kirkland, Maple Valley-Black Diamond, Newcastle, Redmond, Sammamish, Snoqualmie Valley and Woodinville. We cover seven legislative districts (1st, 5th, 32nd, 41st, 45th, 47th and 48th).

The economic vitality we enjoy in this region must not be taken for granted. At the core of our legislative agenda are a handful of very simple, but vital components of a growing and vibrant economy:

  • Mobility of employees, customers and products.
  • Access to a well-educated, highly skilled workforce.
  • Adequate supply of land for business expansion.
  • Adequate supply of housing.
  • Minimal regulatory and tax burdens.

Our positions are general in scope. They are respectfully offered to guide our Legislators in their review and development of legislation during the course of the session.
