Chamber takes stance on immigrant-related legislation

Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce - Monday Morning Report

On Thursday, Nov. 16, the Executive Committee of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce unanimously passed a resolution opposing three separate immigrant-related legislative initiatives being considered by Metro Council, Nashville, Tennessee. All three legislative measures will come before Metro Council for second reading on Tuesday, Nov. 21. Collectively, these measures are bad for business, economic development, government and the community. It is paramount that the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, its volunteer leadership, members and partners help the community understand the real and potential negative implications associated with local government assuming responsibility for complex immigration issues that should be addressed at the federal level. The Chamber encourages every member who lives and/or operates a business in Davidson County to call or e-mail your Metro Council representative to voice the Chamber position before Tuesday, Nov. 21.
