SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – As a means to give Illinois businesses their due, and to highlight the great products made in the “Land of Lincoln,” state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, recently introduced the “Made in Illinois” bill, which direct the state museum to feature products made in Illinois.
“We need to be doing everything we can to support manufacturers throughout Illinois,” said Moylan. “This piece of legislation will help to highlight some of the great products that are produced right here in our state.”
House Bill 2764 would direct the Illinois State Museum to only sell products that are made in Illinois. The measure is a way to help highlight some of the businesses that manufacture goods throughout the state. As visitors stop by the museum to visit some of the interesting displays featuring the history of our state, they will also have the opportunity to explore and purchase some merchandise made by Illinois workers at Illinois businesses. Advocates for the legislation argue it’s an important step to show how valued Illinois manufacturers are to the state.
“It only makes sense that our state museum feature the products made right here in Illinois,” said Moylan. “My goal is this measure will help both visitors and Illinois residents alike learn about some of the great things made right here in Illinois.”
