Education is the key to a qualified workforce and a top priority of the Salt Lake Chamber. In a challenging year for the state budget, the business community calls upon the State Legislature to fully fund both public and higher education–holding them harmless as cuts are administered to other programs and funding for enrollment growth.

The Chamber’s focus on education will be a multi-year effort. While the concerns this year are primarily budgetary, moving forward we seek to:

1. Invest in the most important business input: human capital.

2. Create long-term prosperity

3. Act by taking decisive action to ensure all students receive a quality education.

(for more information on the Chamber’s education goals, see the 2010 Public Policy Guide pages 6-8)

This is a video we debuted last night at the Chamber’s annual Legislative Reception.
