Bill Kovacs is the Senior Vice President for the Environment, Technology & Regulatory Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Since coming to the Chamber in March 1998, Bill has transformed a small division that concentrated on a handful of issues and committee meetings into one of the most significant in the organization. The Environment, Technology & Regulatory Affairs Division initiates and leads multidimensional, national issue campaigns on complex environmental rulemakings, comprehensive energy legislation, telecommunications reform, the systematic application of sound science and economics to the federal regulatory process, and the Chamber’s overall efforts to reform the nation’s regulatory structure.
Before joining the Chamber, Bill practiced law in Washington, D.C., he served as chairman of Virginia’s Hazardous Waste Facilities Siting Board and as chief counsel for the House of Representative’s Subcommittee on Transportation and Commerce.
Bill is a frequent commentator on environmental, energy, and regulatory issues that impact the business community. Bill has a law degree from the Ohio State University College of Law and a bachelor of science degree from the University of Scranton.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
