With 50 chambers of commerce across the state of Illinois participating, this initiative calls upon legislators across the state to prioritize economic relief for the business community in the wake of a devastating year. The below platform was designed collaboratively with the business community's input to identify items that our state legislature should consider to spur short- and long-term economic relief.
