SBAC Springfield Update


The SBAC is currently engaged in detailed talks with the legislative leadership of both chambers in the Illinois General Assembly. Importantly, there has also been a newly formed committee in the House that is of great significance to our mission - the Small Business Tech and Innovation Committee. The SBAC is currently working with members of the newly formed committee on nonpartisan policies that can best improve the small business environment. Recently we moderated an Illinois Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives conversation with Speaker of the House Chris Welch on these very topics. Please watch our discussion with Speaker Welch and Small Business Tech and Innovation Committee Chairwoman Ammons here: IACCE Conversation
