Legislative Affairs


The Government Affairs Committee of TahoeChamber has been successful in bringing together officials from the city and counties to seek solutions to common issues affecting local businesses such as affordable housing, signage, and transportation.  Chamber staff regularly represents the business community at the city, county, state, and federal levels and reports back to the membership on issues of concern to local businesses.

Legislative Updates:

Tahoechamber frequently provides educational workshops, seminars and materials to our membership to keep them apprised of legislative updates that impact their businesses.
