Lunch Program Event: What Happened in Springfield?

Lunch Program Event: What Happened in Springfield?

Speakers: State Representative Michael W. Tryon and State Representative Elaine Nekritz
Date: Wednesday, July 25, 2012, Noon
Location: The University Club, Chicago, Illinois

 

Should this past legislative session get a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”? What was accomplished concerning state budget, revenue, current and future pension issues, payment of outstanding bills owed by the State of Illinois?

How did the Legislature accomplish significant Medicaid reforms? Does this stabilize the State’s health care system? Does it have any impact on governmental and private sector retirees?

Were plastic bags and wrap really an issue? Gambling expansion and cigarette tax?

And what are the major open items for summer or veto sessions or after the election?

Republican Representative in the 64th District, Michael W. Tryon, was first elected to the Illinois House in November, 2004. He currently serves on the Mass Transit, Healthcare Availability Access, Least Cost Power Procurement, Environment and Energy, Local Government and the Smart Growth and Regional Planning Committees of the State Legislature. Former President of the McHenry County Board, he is a Principal in an environmental testing lab.

State Representative Elaine Nekritz (Democrat) is serving her fifth term in the State House. She is Chair of the Personnel and Pension, Judicial One – Civil Law and Special Investigating Committees, she is Vice-Chair of the Pension Investment Committee and she is a Committee member of Transportation, Regulation, Roads, Environmental Health, Housing and Property Sub-Committee and Railroad and Air Transportation Sub-Committee.

IMEC launches 'Made in Illinois' Program

IMEC launches Made in Illinois. Be a part of this exciting new program!

As part of the national “Make it in America” campaign being undertaken by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership, IMEC is launching a companion Made in Illinois program to showcase Illinois products to the public and provide an internet-based forum for manufacturers to connect and generate business opportunities. Illinois manufacturers can register for a free profile page to feature their products and services, share company news, and display pictures and videos.

This program is an exciting opportunity to promote Illinois manufacturing and raise public awareness.  I hope you will consider partnering with us to get the manufacturers in your region to participate!

You can join us in the campaign by communicating about Made in Illinois directly to your local manufacturers, displaying the Made in Illinois icon on your organization’s website or other promotional materials, and distributing the flyer at your events and other activities that will involve manufacturers.  We will also be developing a Made in IL Partner recognition page on the IMEC website and social channels.  If you join the campaign, we will add your organization’s logo to the list of supporters.

Attached is a one-page flyer with details on the program, including links to the Made in Illinois site, and our social media channels.

Contact Tucker Kennedy at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss ways to partner with IMEC.
