July 21, 2014 Talking Points


SBAC message of EDGE Tax Credit Reform and Lowering LLC fees resonating with both Governor Quinn and Gubernatorial Candidate Bruce Rauner

  • The Small Business Advocacy Council was formed in 2010 to empower
    small businesses and entrepreneurs and provide them a voice in Illinois
    politics
  • Since that time, we have drafted and successfully advocated for
    legislation and policies to improve the small business environment
  • However… the inaction of the legislation this past session on our targeted issues of lowering excessively high LLC fees and EDGE tax credit reform was extremely disappointing
  • So we are happy to see that both of these initiatives have been embraced by Governor Pat Quinn in the DCEO Economic Development Plan and Gubernatorial Candidate Bruce Rauner in his new Jobs and Growth Agenda.
  • Of course, we would rather see action than words, which is why the SBAC is rolling out a robust and comprehensive small business campaign that will
    employ political campaign strategies to drive a non-partisan
    smallbusiness agenda
  • Would you like to learn more and get involved? Join us for a discussion about the campaign at our SBAC Policy Committee meeting on Monday, July 28!
