The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urged the nation’s leaders on Wednesday to make economic growth a top priority. Chamber CEO Thomas J. Donohue said his lobbying group sees a once-in-a-generation opportunity for policymakers to enact major reforms to transform America from a “low-growth to a high-growth economy.” “At this moment of significant transition for our country, American businesses large and small are optimistic about the year ahead — optimistic and also realistic about the hard work that will be required to make our optimism a reality,” Donohue said in his annual “State of American Business” address. Donohue also unveiled and outlined an “American Growth Agenda” for 2017, a set of policy recommendations that the organization claims will help expand jobs, incomes and opportunities for Americans.
