Governor signs FWC-sponsored legislation

30 Aug 2017 4:14 PM | Beth Doria (Administrator)

FWC hit another legislative milestone when Governor Rauner signed into law 4 important pieces of legislation designed to help grow Illinois' small and diverse businesses.  FWC, together with its industry partner, HACIA, modeled the legislation after their successful 2012 legislation prompting utility companies to report on their diversity spend.  

The legislation signed by the Governor last week will mandate that telecomunications, cable and internet providers; railroads; private and public institutions of higher education; and recipients of EDGE tax credits, file annual reports on their diversity spend.

FWC wishes to thank Senators Clayborne, Sandoval, Lightford, Castro, and Representatives Evans, Welch and Davis for their leadership and commitment to expanding opportunities for Illinois' small and diverse businesses.
