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.
