House Republicans Call for Business Reforms to Attract Manufacturing and Keep Jobs in Illinois

House Republican members held a capitol news conference yesterday to call for reforms to Illinois’ business climate following the shuttering of the Stellantis Jeep Assembly Plant and its previously announced $150 million investment in Indiana.

Representatives Joe Sosnowski, Dan Ugaste, and John Cabello called for reforms to Illinois’ tax code and business regulatory environment, while pointing out major manufacturers are passing over Illinois to invest in states with friendlier business environments.
