SBAC Advocacy

SBAC is fighting for Small Business

The SBAC has established itself as an advocate for small business and consistently works to pass legislation laser-focused on improving the economic environment for the small business community.

The SBAC has formed powerful coalitions of chambers and trade organizations that actively work to advance non-partisan, common-sense, legislation on behalf of the small business community. Bringing together tens-of-thousands of small business owners, these coalitions speak with an increasingly strong voice.

Over the past several years, we have:

  • Passed Intrastate Equity Crowdfunding in Illinois.
  • Fought for constitutional pension reform proposals to strengthen the state’s fiscal health.
  • Proposed common sense, non-partisan workers’ compensation reform.
  • Worked to level the playing field for small and local businesses through the Marketplace Fairness Act.
  • Drafted and pushed for legislation lowering the some of the highest LLC fees in the nation.
  • Fought to ensure that large tax breaks are not arbitrarily awarded to companies threatening to leave the state at the expense of small businesses and Illinoisans.
  • Fought to reform the way legislative districts are drawn so that politicians are not picking their voters in a partisan manner.
  • Worked to reduce regulations that hurts small businesses without serving the public good.
