PEDA - Pennsylvania Economic Development Association

Legislative/Advocacy News

Legislative Action Center

2016 Action Alerts TBA

Through established relationships with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), other key state agencies, state administration, and legislators, PEDA ensures that economic development remains at the forefront of Pennsylvania's agenda.

An active Advocacy and Legislative Committee reviews issues, programs and legislations that are critical to economic developers in the state. They recommend strategic and policy actions and establish positions which are communicated to legislators and key officials. By staying abreast of new programs and regulations, PEDA can actively influence their final design.

PEDA has consulted and provided guidance and advice to key officials when certain economic development legislation is considered. This vital role in affecting legislation is part of PEDA's mission and represents our strong positioning as an economic development proponent.
