The Power of Policy

Public policy has the power to create or curtail economic growth and prosperity in Massachusetts.

A thriving business community means a thriving Massachusetts. That’s why we work closely with our members and the business community at large to identify, research, and address the issues that matter most to employers – from health care, employment law, and sustainability to budget, taxes, and finance.

We are the only Massachusetts business organization with the size, influence, geographic reach and professional talent to successfully enact pro-business legislation and regulation. Our public-policy work and dedicated lobbying are shaping the future of business.
