Last Wednesday, April 6 25 delegates took a full day away from their business to visit with legislators in Springfield. Along with four other chambers of commerce, we visited with several elected officials and committee meetings at the Capitol and ended the evening hosting a crowded legislative reception allowing our Members to further their relationships with those that make so many important decisions that affect their bottom line. This experience would not have been possible without the generous sponsorships of Choose DuPage, AT&T, Downers Grove Economic Development Corporation and Midwestern University.
The focus of the trip was budget, education funding and independent maps. We also addressed a proposal for the Employee Paid Health Care Time Act; Workers Compensation, specifically causation, some proposed tax credits and appropriations to the General Revenue Fund.
