The Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, along with the Arizona
By Joe Galli
Manufacturer’s Council, has once again outlined policy initiatives for the upcoming legislative session. In January 2012, the Arizona Legislature will convene in Phoenix for what promises to be an interesting election-year session, likely with several significant policy changes designed to promote and enhance the Arizona business community.
Policy areas outlined as targets for reform by the Arizona Chamber include Budget and Government, Defense and Aerospace, Education and Workforce Development, Environment, Health Care, Legal, Regulatory and Financial Services, Small Business, Taxation, Transportation and Infrastructure, Water and Natural Resources, Workers Compensation and Workplace and Insurance.

“These are significant policy arenas and components of the State Chamber’s business agenda,” commented president and CEO of the Flagstaff Chamber, Julie Pastrick. “And policy changes or changes in laws related to these subjects have a direct impact on our local business community and government entities. From health care to budget and government, to small business and transportation and water and natural resources, and everywhere in between, we must keep an eye on our policy makers and their decisions which impact our businesses,” Pastrick finished.
The Arizona Manufacturers Council (AMC) also outlined general policy principles and established some short-term policy goals beneficial for the Flagstaff business community. The clearest policy initiative that could bring short-term benefits to Flagstaff is the AMC’s commitment to support the Arizona Commerce Authority’s effort to recruit manufacturing to Arizona.
Additionally, the AMC supports eliminating barriers to economic development created by infrastructure required for capital intensive manufacturing operations. Also supported in the short-term goals for manufacturing is the idea that Arizona should create a tax environment that helps manufacturers recover from the recession and supports small manufacturing, which can then grow their operations, and their employees.
