Please join us on Thursday, January 21st, at 8:00 am for a live, 30-minute virtual pre-legislative session briefing with TMA lobbyist Jay Shattuck and incoming Illinois Senate Republican Leader Dan McConchie of Hawthorn Woods.

Following the loss of the progressive tax on the November ballot, Governor Pritzker lashed out at his opponents in the business community and said he will remember who helped to defeat the progressive tax, and people will “feel pain.” Without the additional $3.4 billion in annual revenue from the progressive tax, the Governor will either have to cut spending or raise taxes and fees across the board to make up the difference. He has vowed to start by closing “corporate loopholes” that actually help small businesses and manufacturers expand and create jobs.

Jay Shattuck and Leader-elect McConchie will discuss the Governor’s threats and implications for TMA members as well as Senate Republicans’ priorities for the 2021 General Assembly.

We would like to answer any questions you may have regarding the spring legislative session. Please send your questions to TMA government affairs consultant Rich Carter at rich@corstrategies.com, and he will ensure they are answered during the briefing.
