The Maricopa Association of Governments Economic Development Committee (EDC) was launched in 2010 and was sunsetted in October 2023. The committee was formed to develop opportunity-specific and action-oriented initiatives that fostered and advanced infrastructure in the MAG region, especially transportation infrastructure that would further economic development opportunities. The EDC consisted of 36 members, with up of 20 MAG member agency elected officials and one representative from the Arizona Department of Transportation appointed by the MAG Regional Council. The committee also included 15 business representatives.

The final meeting of the Economic Development Committee was held on Oct. 3, 2023, after the MAG Regional Council voted to sunset the committee.
