Revive the Illinois Economy!
Illinois went 736 days without a budget. Unfortunately, over two years of relentless fighting by politicians ended with a budget that includes a tax increase and a reduction in spending but does little to improve the economic climate of our state. The harm the budget impasse inflicted on many people throughout Illinois and the damage it caused our state is tragic.
It is time to take action!
The SBAC will be spreading our non-partisan message to the masses through a grassroots advocacy field campaign. Members, staff and volunteers will be canvassing to end the budget impasse at local events over the next six weeks.
There will be T-shirts and materials available for those able to join us. We expect our message and sincere concern about Illinois’ economy will resonate with the public.
- Make the reforms necessary to revive our state’s economy.
- Stop the political gamesmanship in Springfield.
- Pass legislation that will empower the small business community.
We have strategically chosen these canvassing locations in Democratic and Republican districts.
