Chamber President Craig Whitney says it’s important for business leaders to make their voices heard at the state level so lawmakers can understand how the diversion impacts the economy.

“To hear from actual business people that this is a crucial issue that affects commerce and their ability to do business, and we need this project to come to fruition,” Whitney said.
