WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (GA-02) greeted the Georgia Chamber of Commerce at their annual Capitol Hill briefing as well as introduced his friend and colleague Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (MD-05) to the delegation. The event was attended by representatives hailing from across Georgia’s business community.

“Capitol Hill belongs to the people, and any day I can greet Georgians in Washington D.C. is a good day,” said Congressman Bishop. “The Georgia Chamber’s visits to the Capitol continue the dialogue between the hard working members of the Georgia business community and Congress on the issues important to us all—creating jobs, reducing burdensome regulations, and strengthening the economy.”

“As so many of the decisions that impact business are made at the Federal level, we believe it is important for our Chamber to have open lines of communication with our representatives in Washington, D.C.,” said Chris Clark, President and CEO of the Georgia Chamber. “Our annual Fly-In plays an important role in our relationship with the members of our delegation and we greatly appreciate Congressman Bishop’s willingness not only to particulate in this event, but to always listen to the needs of Georgia’s business community.” 

The Georgia Chamber of Commerce is the state’s largest business organization, and focuses on keeping, growing, and creating jobs in Georgia.
