Issue Position: Creating a Destination Economy

Issue Position

Illinois has a serious spending problem. Over the past seven years, state government spending has far out-paced revenue growth. The result? Illinois has become a deadbeat state...paying its bills late, laying off workers from important programs, and bouncing from one bizarre financial scheme to another to keep the state solvent.

Kirk Dillard has a plan to make Illinois a Destination Economy to help attract and keep good-paying jobs. Illinois has lost more than 300,000 high-quality jobs since 2001--many of them to neighboring states with better economic climates. Kirk plans to reverse that through the most aggressive job-recruitment program in this state's history that will involve both business and labor leaders. He'll not only work to develop first-rate employer incentive programs, but also develop initiatives designed to address the "frictional" employer costs where other states beat us--like the cost of unemployment insurance and workers' compensation.
