Our Legislative Committee is designed to work with local and state legislators regarding issues of concern to the business community and local and regional economic development. This year, the Cranberry Country Chamber of Commerce joins the The Southeastern Massachusetts Legislative Alliance of Chambers [SEMLAC], comprised of the following chambers of commerce: Bristol County, Cape Cod Canal Region, Cranberry Country, Sandwich, SouthCoast, Taunton Area, Tri-Town and United Regional. SEMLAC represents the business interests of the communities each chamber serves and addresses policy issues of importance to the region as a whole, together becoming one voice in common issues such as $15.00 minimum wage increase, Family and Medical Leave, Millionaire’s Tax, and other statewide ballot initiatives.
