The Illinois Policy Institute is a nonpartisan research organization dedicated to supporting free market principles and liberty-based public policy initiatives for a better Illinois. As a leading voice for economic liberty and government accountability, we engage policy makers, opinion leaders, and citizens on the state and local level.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Our vision is to make Illinois a free enterprise leader for the rest of the nation. Our research and policies promote economic freedom, foster job creation and promote shared prosperity. Our successes in 2013 include: · The introduction of a comprehensive liberty agenda in Springfield with bipartisan support. Fourteen legislative sponsors adopted Institute initiatives that would make Illinois a more prosperous place. · Released an alternative budget to show lawmakers how to fix Illinois’ budget and massive pension debt. The plan solves Illinois’ pension crisis, balances the state budget, pays down the state’s billions in unpaid bills and returns $7 billion to taxpayers. · Sounded the alarm on government unions’ plan for another income tax grab in the form of a progressive tax. · Defeated plans to create a state-based ObamaCare exchange that would’ve led to higher taxes and fees on Illinois businesses and employees. · Helped the media report the news through a liberty-oriented lens. We reach more than 2 million individuals each month, with 3,400 TV, print and radio mentions in national, state and local outlets in the first nine months of 2013 alone. · The Liberty Justice Center litigation team won cases protecting the economic freedom of a vehicle-for-hire driver in Bloomington and the right of a Western Illinois University student to take his duly won city council seat.
