Indiana Chamber of Commerce calls for bipartisanship post election

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WPTA21) –With the votes almost all in, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce is telling elected officials it is time to get back to work.

Chamber president Kevin Bringer said it is about time to transition from politics to policy. Bringer says elected officials need to embrace bipartisanship. He says it should be viewed as a symbol of progress.

“We’ve seen instances of bipartisanship. But we need much more of it, especially from Washington,” Bringer said. “It needs to happen on major issues that have been languishing. It’s far better to deliver solutions that may not leave everyone totally happy but represent sound policy to help our nation move forward.”

While Republicans retained control of the Senate, the Democratic win in the House ends the GOP monopoly on power in Washington and opens a new era of divided government.
