• Government Affairs Committee


    The Government Affairs Committee (GAC) of the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce is committed to reviewing, developing, and supporting issues that promote a positive, pro-active economic environment with social progress and enhanced quality of life. The chamber believes that laws and regulations should serve the public without acting as a detriment to business development and growth.

    Our purpose is to inform and to influence our elected officials to establish regulations and policies that will improve the ability of a business to compete in the worldwide economy and continue to generate income and jobs that will help to enhance Newport County and greater Rhode Island. The issues are raised by the chamber members and evaluated by the Government Affairs Committee with a recommendation to the Board of Directors.
