Along with leaders from the business community, the State Chamber’s Infrastructure & Transportation Committee met last week to discuss recommendations on how the State should invest the additional $1 billion its set to receive from the federal government. As Bob Perkins of the Delaware Business Roundtable put it, and I’m paraphrasing, “These are unprecedented times, it’s raining money in Delaware and the business community has a real opportunity to provide input that will shape the future of our state.”
This is pivotal moment in Delaware’s future. The decisions made on how to invest these funds will have an impact on businesses, their employees, and all Delawareans. Leaders offered several ideas such as funding site readiness and infrastructure projects, creating a multi-university center, and achieving 100% broadband coverage across the state. The State Chamber plans on offering recommendations to the Governor who is seeking feedback from the business community.
The State Chamber is uniquely positioned to bring all parties to the table. Together we can find solutions and offer ways to create jobs, promote business, and improve the quality of life for all Delawareans.
