Economic development continues to lift Illinois out of fiscal uncertainty. Thursday, legislation supported by State Senator Napoleon Harris was signed by Governor Quinn. The measure includes several economic development projects aimed at increasing business opportunities throughout Illinois. The new law also boasts developments to benefit residents in the 15th Legislative district, namely construction projects at McCormick Place, a Peotone airport and incentives for small businesses.
“These projects represent opportunities to foster a business-friendly environment while providing good paying jobs to increase revenues for local governments,” State Senator Napoleon Harris said. “This measure is an example of the types of initiatives community leaders need to bring to the General Assembly so the public and private sectors can work together to build a strong economy.”
