The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry was named a winner in the Mo Scout annual “Who Won the Session?” report. Below is the write up.
Missouri Chamber – The Chamber’s strategy of hiring some of the brightest minds in the Capitol paid dividends this session as they implemented a full-court press. Their agenda was so vast that they inevitably had more losers than winners in their portfolio, but that’s how winners roll. Their number one priority came home. That was the Second Injury Fund fix with a side of workers’ compensation change. Highlighting the Chamber’s spot in the drivers’ seat was the reactive position changes of their rival organization, Associated Industries of Missouri, as the bill advanced throughout session.
