2021 Legislative Priorities

The Henderson Chamber is focused on the following priorities for the 2021 legislative session:

  • Business and Economic Recovery

  • Unemployment Insurance
    • Funding of unemployment insurance (not just funding, but system infrastructure)

  • Legal Liability
    • Support of protection of employers from legal liability from COVID cases in the workplace

  • Infrastructure
    • I-69 support and funding
    • Gas tax support to assist with funding options/user tax
    • Broadband support (immediate need for remote learning, future need of fiber). This area of the state is underserved in relation to other areas of the state.

  • Education and Workforce Development
    • Child care providers – not enough to meet needs
    • Impact due to kids learning at home long term with children falling behind at grade level
