The following is the weekly update of U.S. Chamber publications between February 26th and March 5th. Also, as the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve, it is important for all employers to monitor the outbreak and implement strategies to protect their workforce while ensuring continuity of operations.

Please encourage your members to contact the administration to show support for modernizing NEPA. Click here to send a letter to the President
