How the IMPROVE Act will Affect Your Business

The Chamber’s Public Policy team works for you to help create a business-friendly environment so your business can thrive in Memphis. There is a current issue that affects our local economy and thousands of employers in the Memphis region: the need for infrastructure investment.   Governor Haslam has proposed the IMPROVE Act (Improve Manufacturing, Public Roads and Opportunities for a Vibrant Economy) that will fund critically needed improvements to our infrastructure.  We support this proposal not only because of the tremendous investment it will allow directly in Memphis, but also because of the tax reductions that it provides to bring more jobs to our community which will help our businesses grow.
