The NE Chamber works hard to maintain its relationship as a trusted advocate for its members in all sectors of the state.
In 2019, the NE Chamber took its commitment to its members to a new level by signing on as a partner to promote Blueprint Nebraska, a statewide, strategic economic development plan geared toward achieving specific economic outcomes by 2030. The NE Chamber’s goal is to support the modern market, workforce, growth, tax, legislative and regulatory needs of Nebraska businesses. Blueprint Nebraska initiatives give strategic direction and structure to that effort.
HOW NEBRASKA RANKS FOR BUSINESS
Nebraska ranks No. 5 in the Forbes best states for business. Its No. 2 ranking for regulatory environment and No. 8 ranking for business cost help contribute to this score. The state also ranks high for fiscal stability and state educational systems. Nebraska’s unemployment rank typically hovers around 3%, with a nearly 70% labor participation rate. The coasts are no more than two days away by rail or truck, and high-quality infrastructure supports global distribution systems.
With so much going for it, the state needs a strong business advocate to promote tax relief, attract workforce and advance its strongest industries like agribusiness, manufacturing, transportation and financial services through innovation and advanced technology. This means bringing important issues to the forefront of our state agenda, including structural tax reform, STEM and education-to-workforce programs, rural broadband, affordable housing, child care availability, economic incentives and research and development funding. See Nebraska Rankings below.
"The State Chamber really cares about driving economic development in Nebraska and always has all of our interests in mind in their support. Businesses that are big or small in all geographic locations are recognized by the State Chamber and they consider all benefits and consequences when making decisions or driving positive change.”
