Advocate for Important Legislation in Annapolis

On the front line of developing lifesaving vaccines and un-parralleled innovation, the biopharma and life sciences industry is vital to the future of our state—and our planet. With over 2,800 emerging biopharma companies in Maryland, the biopharma and biohealth industry continues to thrive. However, proposed legislation in Annapolis can impact the success and growth of your business.

At the Maryland Chamber of Commerce, we connect business leaders to policy decision-makers to fight for issues that impact your bottom-line.

Last year alone, legislators introduced 3,101 bills and 26 joint resolutions during the 2018 Maryland General Assembly legislative sessions—1,269 from the Senate and 1,832 from the House.

In conjunction with the Chamber’s Legislative and Issue Committees, we reviewed 325 bills, tracking and testifying on 125 with significant foreseeable impacts on Maryland’s businesses and industries.

Our committee members provided critical analysis and testimonials on each Chamber-considered bill, and offered expertise to assist the Government Affairs team’s advocacy. 

Focused on issues impacting your industry, our Health Care and Biopharma Policy Committee is ready to fight for your issues and make your legislative priorities heard in Annapolis.

With over 600 members, the Maryland Chamber of Commerce is a force in Annapolis. Together, we can build a stronger and more competitive state. If we thrive, our state, constituents, and businesses can thrive.
