SPRINGFIELD – State lawmakers are accepting the Technology & Manufacturing Association’s invitation to participate in TMA’s new effort in the Illinois General Assembly called the SaMM Caucus (Small and Midsized Manufacturers’ Caucus).
The purpose of the SaMM Caucus will be to gather interested state lawmakers and provide information to them that will positively influence state policy from small and midsized manufacturers’ unique perspectives.
“Manufacturing is a crucial part of Illinois’ economic strength,” Capitol lobbyist David Curtin said. “As I talk to legislators more and more, their eyes light up when they realize TMA members are affected differently by public policy than are bigger, publicly-traded manufacturing corporations. Illinois’ small and midsized manufacturers need a healthy, robust voice at the table when lawmakers are determining tax and work-related policies.”
TMA’s SaMM Caucus will meet periodically during the legislative session to review how policy will affect Illinois manufacturers with less than 500 employees.
