MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Chamber of Commerce has found itself smack dab in the middle of the pension funding controversy.
That’s because it vocally supported the health care cuts passed by the Memphis City Council.
Chamber President Phil Trenary joined us to talk about why his organization supports the cuts.
The chamber maintains the cuts are better than a hefty tax increase that would hurt businesses and all citizens.
The chamber believes tax hike could cause some businesses to close and potential businesses to go elsewhere.
