While a flourishing business community and a competitive workforce drive our economy, the government sets the conditions for success. We work with leaders in business and government to create the certainty needed for businesses to hire, invest, and grow. It’s through sustained growth that people, communities, and our society will advance and thrive.
Our guide to becoming a federal contractor, bidding on projects, the impact of COVID-19 on federal contracts, and more.
The U.S. Chamber advocates for policies that foster business growth and innovation. Recognizing that meaningful, long-lasting policy requires buy-in from both sides of the aisle, we collaborate with lawmakers to advance bipartisan solutions. We also work across the three branches of government to enact smart regulation, a competitive tax code, a rational legal environment, a robust trade agenda, and investment in the future.

VIA ELECTRONIC FILINGRE: Request for 120-Day Extension of Comment Period Relating to Proposed “Financial Responsibility Requirements Under CERCLA § 108(b) for Classes of Facilities in the Hardrock Mining Industry,” 82 Fed. Reg. 3,388 (Jan. 11, 2017); Docket No. EPA-HQ-SFUND-2015-0781; RIN 2050-AG61. Dear Ms. McCabe, Mr. Minoli and Mr. Benton:
Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Democratic Leader Schumer:
This multi-association letter supporting H.J. Res. 37, a resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to invalidate the Federal Acquisition Council regulations implementing the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order (EO) 13673, was sent to all Members of the United States Congress.
Dear Senator Grassley and Representative Collins: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports H.R. 469 and S. 119, the “Sunshine for Regulatory Decrees and Settlements Act” and thanks you for introducing this important legislation. The Sunshine for Regulatory Decrees and Settlements Act would help address the abusive “sue and settle” process that allows special interest groups to use lawsuit settlements to take effective control of an agency’s agenda and regulatory priorities.
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly supports H.R. 5, which includes the Regulatory Accountability Act, and may consider including votes on, or in relation to, H.R. 5 in our annual How They Voted scorecard. The Chamber commends the House for acting on regulatory reform legislation so early in the 115th session, and for bringing H.R 5, which also includes important provisions related to small businesses, to the floor.
A new year is a time for a fresh start, and Washington will have exactly that when the new administration and Congress take office.
