The Illinois Chamber has created the Environmental Affairs Committee to provide a one-stop shop for monitoring and impacting environmental issues. Staffed by the Illinois Environmental Regulatory Group, this committee will have access to information on emerging issues, participate in quarterly meetings on legislation and regulations, and tap into IERG resources to help facilitate inquiries and compliance questions.
