Senate Bill 3659 has been passed by the Illinois Senate and has now moved to the House for consideration. This bill is an agreed bill with bi-partisan support and provides for Illinois Enterprise Zones to have the ability to extend their termination dates by an additional 20 years. The bill has also been given the firm promise in the Senate that no Prevailing Wage mandate will be attached. The Officers and Board of IEZA have worked with both sides of the aisle in Springfield and others to bring this measure that preserves the viability of the Enterprise Zone Program for an additional 20 years. Please use the linked IEZA Position Paper when contacting your legislators to seek their support.
