Gov. Rauner Says He Wants To Reduce Regulations On Businesses In Illinois

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner says he wants to reduce the number of regulations on businesses in the state. He’s creating a commission to reduce the number of licenses professionals need in Illinois and the fees that go along with them. Rauner says those fes are another way of taxing businesses - and he wants to change the mindset in Illinois that businesses are to be shaken for cash.
