CHICAGO – The National Automatic Merchandising said it is strengthening its ties with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as a new member of its Government Operations, Oversight & Consumer Affairs Committee and Council on Small Business.
"This expanded role will allow NAMA to be at the table for higher-level policy discussions that can impact national legislative and regulatory policies," said Eric Dell, NAMA's senior vice-president of government affairs.
The Chamber's committee has broad oversight responsibility for the federal government's regulatory and information collection processes, as well as the procedural operation of government agencies and consumer affairs. It is also responsible for developing and carrying out policy on regulatory process reform and review, and other proposals directed at taming the growth and reducing the burden of federal regulations.
Members of the Council on Small Business help shape and advance the Chamber's message and pro-business agenda through involvement in the political process, before Congress, the administration, regulatory agencies, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
