The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will present “Outlook 2009: The State of American Business,” tomorrow morning in Washington, according to a press release from the powerful business group.
Open to the public, the event will present the Chamber’s top priorities for 2009 in policy development. “Facing unprecedented economic challenges and a new political environment, the Chamber will outline a strategy for restoring growth that includes immediate enactment of an economic stimulus, major investments in infrastructure, and “challenging organized labor’s anti-growth agenda and ensuring reasonable taxes and regulations,” according to the release.
The Chamber fears an “emboldened labor movement” is pushing an “aggressive activist agenda” that will impose “new and costly regulations on businesses” and stifle competitiveness.
