Representing Michigan Business
National Awareness. Local Focused.
Together our team and members have been a critical factor in federal and state legislation issues that impact small businesses. We work to ensure that our members are educated on the impact of important legislative issues in real terms. Through lobbying and partnerships, we work to ensure that lawmakers understand the role that new laws and regulations have on Michigan business. We determine our legislative priorities based on the impact they have on our members and businesses throughout our state. As a member, you have the opportunity to decide how involved you would like to be in public policy and legislative activity.
Your Voice In Lansing
A priority for MichBusiness is connecting our explorers and pioneers with opportunities to network and establish relationships with others that can provide value to your business. Through our Government Relations efforts, members are connected with local, state, and federal leaders that make the decisions that impact your business’s bottom line. Have a concern or comment about a particular piece of legislation or public policy? As your voice in Lansing, our team is dedicated to making sure that your voice reaches the legislative decision makers that are directly impacting your business.
Standing Up For Businesses
When it comes to business taxes, our team actively monitors any and all changes that are on the horizon. If it’s affecting your business, we are concerned. We stay active in fighting any business tax increases and always encourage a more business-friendly atmosphere in Michigan.
MichBusiness has partnered with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) in order to keep the Michigan business community educated on important changing rules and regulations with regard to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Through this relationship, MichBusiness is able to provide valuable knowledge and resources to businesses throughout the state to help navigate through Healthcare Reform.
Helping Michigan Roads
We work with the State of Michigan and other groups to help showcase the need for fixing Michigan’s roads and other infrastructural needs.
Lobbying For Reform
Aside from providing Legislators with our proposed reforms, we continue to lobby against unnecessary spending and for changes in budget allocations to be made.
There are many benefits of being an environmentally conscious company. We work to help Michigan businesses become more “green” by promoting sustainable initiatives that can be used to cut operational and economical costs to help companies’ bottom line while also helping our environment.
In addition to our environmental initiatives, we support The Sustainability Fee that is proposed as a funding source for recycling in Michigan. The economic value that this fee would raise for recycling purposes will be used to promote a comprehensive recycling plan to increase our recyclable materials, decrease our landfills, and create jobs throughout the state.
