Bill Would Help Keep Business in State

Are Waukegan, Rockford, Rock Island, and Danville the low-hanging fruit for neighboring states? The Illinois Senate has passed a bill which, its sponsor says, is supposed to keep businesses along the state lines within state borders.

The bill, State Sen. Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) says, makes changes to the recently-formed Illinois Business Development Council. It adds the requirement that, “in counties that border another state that we take a look at best practices there and provide recommendations … regarding those best practices for business retention,” says Bush.

SB 2640 has passed the Senate, 52-0-1.
