OTTWA, Ill. – State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, is launching his Small Business Advisory Committee to spur new legislative proposals to continue helping and growing Illinois Valley’s businesses and economy.
“I want to see Illinois be open for business, and that means working with the business community to help them grow their operations and create good paying jobs,” Yednock said. “I helped pass a balanced budget that expands tax credits to help businesses grow, but I want to hear directly from business owners about what more Illinois can do to attract new business.”
Yednock is starting a new Small Business Advisory Council to host business owners across the Illinois Valley and work on new ideas to help Illinois attract new businesses to the state. The Illinois Manufacturers’ Association will also be in attendance of this meeting to review Illinois’ balanced budget that expanded pro-business tax credits and repealed the state’s Franchise Tax.
Yednock’s event will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 4 p.m. at the 807 LaSalle St. in Ottawa. The Ottawa Chamber of Commerce will also join the committee meeting. Local business owners are encouraged to attend this free event.
“Helping business succeed will help build a stronger Illinois and middle class,” Yednock said. “I look forward to the first meeting with business leaders across the area to help the businesses who contribute so much to Illinois’ economy.”
