The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors voted to approve the 2014 Legislative Agenda. The legislative agenda includes the major policy priorities and positions at the municipal, state and federal levels of government.
Some of the highlights in the 2014 Legislative Agenda includes continued advocacy efforts to pass municipal employee pension reform with an added focus on the City of Chicago's pension systems; oppose efforts to increase the state’s minimum wage and maintain the current “tip credit” provision; oppose the extension of the income tax increase and a progressive tax; support efforts to reform the process for establishing legislative districts; and support efforts to improve the state’s tax incentive and credit programs.
The Chamber will also continue to push for reforms of the business licensing and permitting process in the City of Chicago as well as passage of a taxpayer's bill of rights in Cook County.
