Federal Priorities

The Vegas Chamber maintains a presence on federal issues through an engaged contract team at The Porter Group and by engaging on strategic priorities important to the growth and development of Nevada in the global economy. The Vegas Chamber has been instrumental in several federal issues in recent years, including the designation of Tule Springs as Nevada’s first national monument and the passage of Interstate 11, which will connect Phoenix and Las Vegas (the two largest cities in the U.S. not connected by an interstate).
