The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Council of State Chambers (COSC), under the leadership of COSC Chair Mark Wilson, president and CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, have created a joint task force to support and coordinate the federal and state approaches to reopening the national economy.

As our nation’s leaders begin to carefully consider restarting the national economy, the joint chamber task force will help ensure greater collaboration between the business community and government at the federal and state levels.

“We’re all in this together and by joining forces we will help America recover the right way, and we’ll be uniting business for good,” said Mark Wilson, chair of the Council of State Chambers and president and CEO of the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “It’s very clear that many of us are, or have, launched state-specific restart and recovery plans and this task force will accelerate the efficient and important exchange of information between local, state, and national leaders.”

Just as the U.S. Chamber and the Florida Chamber are connected through a task force focused on linking the White House’s Opening Up America Again plan to the state’s, the Florida Chamber is connecting Governor Ron DeSantis’ Re-Open Florida plan to local chambers and other economic development leaders across Florida.

“Unprecedented coordination between business and government is needed to map how we can begin a gradual reopening of American businesses,” U.S. Chamber President Suzanne Clark said. “It is critical that states, local governments, and business sectors learn from one another on the best ways to prudently reopen the economy — and this new task force is key to achieving that goal.”

The task force will include representatives from all 50 states, mirroring the coordination between the governors and the federal government. The U.S. Chamber will work with the task force to help address federal issues and will work with COSC to monitor and coordinate best practices at the state and local levels.
