Rep. Dan Newhouse Marks 10th Anniversary of Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative Dan Newhouse (R-WA) spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives to mark the 10th anniversary of the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce.
“I rise today to recognize the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce on their 10-year anniversary celebration. This auspicious occasion marks the date that the Richland and the Tri-City area Chamber of Commerce merged to form the regional chamber in 2006.
“The Tri-Cities is the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the state of Washington, situated at the confluence of the Columbia, Snake and Yakima Rivers. The beautiful Columbia Basin and 300 days of sunshine attract opportunities for agriculture, recreation and businesses.
“The Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce represents nearly 1,200 diverse businesses, providing access to customers and a network for job creators. The Chamber provides visibility for partner companies and works to improve the economic climate of our region. The Chamber represents local leaders working to advance the local economy and the quality of life in the Tri-Cities.
“With a motto of ‘Bolder, Brighter, Better,’ this advocacy group has had a tremendous positive impact attracting jobs in our community. It is my distinct pleasure to recognize and congratulate them on this milestone.”
