Loudoun Chamber Focuses on Economic Recovery, Workforce and Housing Affordability in their 2022 Public Policy Positions
Lansdowne, VA – The Loudoun Chamber of Commerce today released its 2022 Public Policy Agenda, which contains a series of proposals to address Loudoun’s workforce shortages, housing affordability crisis and other challenges related to the County’s post-COVID recovery.
The Loudoun Chamber’s 2022 legislative and policy agenda details the organization’s official positions on a variety of economic and quality of life issues that impact the business climate and quality of life in Loudoun and across the Commonwealth.
Among the issues prioritized by the Chamber are Loudoun’s growing workforce challenges, which is worsened by the County’s housing affordability crisis. The Chamber also sharpened its support for Virginia’s Right-to-Work laws, which is vital in maintaining Virginia as the “Best State for Business,” and for increased investments in economic development, to support the Commonwealth’s continued recovery from the COVID pandemic.
“As Loudoun and Virginia rebound from the impacts of COVID-19, our recovery requires thoughtful public policies that encourage innovation, secure infrastructure investment, and provide our workforce the skills to meet the needs of our new economy. The 2022 Loudoun Chamber Policy Positions will provide our business community with the vision and direction to meet this challenge head on,” said Loudoun Chamber Vice President of Government Affairs, Grafton deButts.

Going into each new year, leaders of the Loudoun Chamber’s Public Policy Committee review each priority area of the organization’s policy positions to ensure each issue effectively advocates for the current and future needs of the regional business community.
