Legislative Agenda

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is committed to helping this region become the best community to live, work, and play and your investment is crucial to our mission.  Thank you for your membership and for your support.

We work, every day, to promote a viable and healthy business climate within our region, advocating for pro-business legislation on a local, state, and national level.  We recognize that policy decisions made by elected officials directly impact your business success.

As the voice of business, this Chamber represents businesses in our membership spanning from Charleston to Savannah, with the core concentration in right here in Beaufort County.

Each year the Chamber develops our legislative agenda through the help of our committees, Board of Directors, and through surveys of our membership.

We use four guiding principles when we consider taking positions on issues.  They must:

  • Maintain and grow opportunities for Beaufort County businesses
  • Reduce the cost of doing business
  • Manage growth and support infrastructure improvements so that the marketability of the area is not threatened
  • Increase the qualified workforce


The survey produced different areas of legislative priorities.  This year’s agenda is based entirely off your feedback.
