The Illinois Development Council’s government advocacy initiative for the 97th General Assembly began with sending every member of the House of Representatives and Senate a welcome letter on behalf of the IDC membership. Now the real work begins as the members of the new legislature converge on Springfield and tackle an anticipated introduction of over 6,000 new bills during the first session alone, many impacting economic development.

The IDC Government Affairs Committee reviews, evaluates and informs the memberships on legislation that may impact economic development in Illinois. The committee will when directed by the board of directors position the industry in support or opposition of key legislation and serve as a resource to elected members of the General Assembly on industry related issues.
