Government Affairs

Illinois CapitalThe Illinois Economic Development Association’s government advocacy initiatives for the 100th General Assembly will center on two valuable instructions. Our Government Affairs committee in concert with our legislative monitoring provider will isolate legislation important to statewide economic development and report these bills and analysis when necessary to the members. Secondly, IEDA leadership will be increasing our visibility at the State Capitol, not in a lobbying measure, but making the true voice of economic development more relevant through direct legislative contact with economic development background that would be helpful for legislators as they consider bills important to IEDA members.
