Renton Chamber Legislative Advocacy
SOUTH SOUND CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE LEGISLATIVE COALITION
The South Sound Chambers of Commerce Legislative Coalition is comprised 8 Chambers from the following communities: Auburn Area, Covington, Federal Way, Fife-Regional, Kent, Puyallup-Sumner, Renton and Southwest King County Chambers of Commerce. We represent approximately 3,262 businesses that employ more than 185,977 workers in the South King County and North Pierce County region. Collectively we represent businesses in the following 18 cities: Algona, Auburn, Bonney Lake, Burien, Covington, Des Moines, Edgewood, Enumclaw, Federal Way, Fife, Kent, Milton, Pacific, Puyallup, Renton, Tukwila, Seatac, and Sumner.
The South Sound area which we represent is strategically located between our state's two largest ports, and is home to critically important aerospace, manufacturing, warehousing, tourism, construction, education, healthcare and service industries that play a vital role in the county, regional and state economies. Huge portions of the goods supplied to businesses and families, both regionally and throughout the state, are processed or shipped through our area. Without functional South Sound facilities and capital infrastructure, much of the trade that passes through the ports of Seattle and Tacoma would likely be diverted to other states.
STATEWIDE LEGISLATIVE DASHBOARD
The Renton Chamber is one of thirty chambers throughout the state that are united with a single voice on the critical issues of: Financial Sustainability; Jobs; Education and Transportation. As this movement grows, legislators in all districts will begin to hear the same message from the business community.
