Moving Forward: Policies to Make Illinois Competitive in a Global Economy

CTBA's Annual Fiscal Symposium, "Moving Forward: Policies to Make Illinois Competitive in a Global Economy", featured Michael Mazerov, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities in Washington, DC. Mr. Mazerov explained why cutting taxes is not an effective means of boosting economic growth, creating jobs, and enhancing entrepreneurship. Instead, he indicated why states should prioritize investing in education, worker training, public infrastructure and targeted assistance to small business. A panel discussion followed, moderated by Craig Dellimore, Political Editor for WBBM Newsradio 780 AM and 105.9 FM.
