Welcome to the Grassroots Action Center of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. Thank you for participating in our on-line advocacy system that has leveraged thousands of messages to the Governor and legislators on key business issues. This system also allows access to the Illinois congressional delegation and some local officials.
We know that running a business takes a lot of time. When you’re serving your customers, meeting a payroll, and dealing with the daily challenges associated with business, you don’t always have the time to track legislation. That is why we track the legislation for you, provide you with the background materials you need, and provide the key contact information for legislators that need to hear from you.
Once you are logged on to our system, you will receive periodic legislative alerts on issues that need your immediate attention. You will also be able to browse other issues and choose topics that are of interest to you. Within a few clicks of your mouse button you will be able to communicate with public officials who are the key decision makers on issues affecting your job and livelihood, and make a positive influence on laws that could impact your business.
Ultimately, this system is about making your voice heard. Millions of dollars in higher business taxes, fees, and regulations are at stake. By amplifying your voice, along with the thousands of other chamber of commerce members in Illinois, we can make a difference.
