Putting Illinois back to work
This week I joined with several of my colleagues in introducing a package of jobs creation bills. Illinois has the second highest unemployment rate in the country, and 570,000 Illinoisans are currently out of work. Our plan would help existing employers by reforming workers compensation and making a tax credit for research and development permanent. It would help new and growing employers by adding more enterprise zones and reducing fees for incorporating, and it would help future generations prepare for good-paying jobs by increasing our investment in science, technology, engineering and math education.

The package, introduced this week, includes items such as workers compensation reform, new enterprise zones and reduced fees for starting a business in Illinois.
