Public Policy

Strengthening Houston's thriving business environment is critical to our members' mission of making Houston the best place to live, work and build a business. At the Greater Houston Partnership, high-caliber business leaders bring their priorities, and together with the Public Policy Division, elected officials and community organizations, we shape solutions to the region's most pressing issues. As advocates for strong public policy at all levels of government, the Partnership works with our members to make Houston even greater.

Collaborate with key stakeholders to identify and address the issues affecting the business community and drive solutions.

Support policies at the local, state and federal level that address the region's most pressing issues.
