public policy on business and economic issues and achieving organizational excellence.
Through hard work and dedication of 37 Board Members, 250+ volunteers and 10 staff members, the Tri-City Regional
Chamber accomplished what we had set out to do in 2015. As you can see by the following metrics, we’ve had a very

People from all over the world
are entering the workforce and
bringing with them cultural
differences that pose new
challenges for companies. As a business, you
should be aware of how to recruit, sell, hire, train
and motivate diverse individuals and groups. The
successful business is not only using diversity to
build a stronger, more cohesive workforce, but also
to explore the multitude of ideas and viewpoints
that diversity offers.

Government Affairs
The start of a new year also brings the start of a new legislative
session in Olympia. The Washington State Legislature will convene
for Regular Session on Monday, January 11, 2016. This year’s
session is scheduled to last for 60 days is expected to adjourn in
early March. Once again, education is expected to be a major issue
for consideration as legislators addresses ongoing issues with the
McCleary decision and funding basic education. Other issues could
also come to the forefront in anticipation of the 2016 election cycle,
which will see all statewide offices on the ballot in November.
In preparation for the 2016 session, the Regional Chamber’s
Government Affairs Committee established five legislative objectives
that cover issues that have a significant impact on chamber members
and the Tri-Cities economy. The following list is a brief outline of
these objectives identified by the committee and approved by the
Regional Chamber’s Board of Directors:
11
Education & Workforce Training
Energy & Carbon Emissions
Tax & Fiscal Policy
Wage & Hour Reform
Water Resources
Support efforts of the state’s higher education system to better meet the needs of employers
in Washington.
Advocate for a change in state policy to recognize hydroelectricity as a renewable energy source
and support policies that encourage private sector investment in carbon reducing technology.
Support reauthorization of Local Revitalization Financing (LRF). Reauthorization of LRF, along with modifications
towards tax increment financing (TIF), will help promote economic development efforts in the Tri-Cities and other
communities across the state.
Promote consistency between state and federal wage and hour law when there is no clearly articulated, policy-based
reason for more restrictive state standards. Also, advocate against drastic increases to the minimum wage – these are
not economically viable in smaller communities in Eastern Washington, like the Tri-Cities.
The Regional Chamber supports policies that will help address the region’s water needs. Increased water storage and
protection of our existing dams help ensure our community and state have reliable access to water that can address
future growth.
