U.S. Chamber of Commerce Key Developments

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Announces Leadership Changes to Shape its Lobbying Strategy

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced changes in its leadership structure that will shape the group's lobbying strategy as it prepares for a new Congress and president in a political climate that is increasingly hostile to the business community's agenda. The impending changes, expected to be announced in the coming weeks, will address how the powerful business lobby plans to fill the role of longtime chief lobbyist Bruce Josten, who is slated to retire at the end of the year. It is unclear whether the changes will result in replacing Josten directly or will be one step in a broader reshuffling of top-level executives at the Chamber. The move comes at an important juncture for the Chamber and the broader business lobby in Washington as populist movements in both parties have put in peril many of the top items on their agenda, including trade deals and immigration reform. For years, the business community could count on the strong support of Republicans, but that alliance has frayed in recent years with tea party Republicans complaining about corporate influence and crony capitalism.
