SBAC Health Care Cooperative Bill, SB 2885, Passes Senate Insurance Committee!


Yesterday, legislation authorizing health insurance cooperatives, SB 2885, was voted out of the Senate Insurance Committee and onto the Senate floor. This was a huge win for small business. Thank you to our members and coalition for making this happen.

Call to action: Please stop by your state reps and state senators office within the next 30 days. Introduce yourself as a resident that lives in the district, and as an SBAC member. Let them know that you want Healthcare Cooperatives to pass this session, and that the entire small business community of Illinois wants it too. If they say they will support you, ask them to contact Dan Johnson. Here is his contact information.
