    Governor JB Pritzker signed the State’s first long-term capital package, the “Rebuild Illinois Capital Plan,” into law, marking the first time since 2009 that the State has had a comprehensive capital plan in place. Rebuild Illinois will make $45 billion of investments in roads, bridges, railroads, universities, early childhood centers, and State facilities over the next six years, creating and supporting an estimated 540,000 jobs over the life of the plan and revitalizing local economies across the State.

Local Government and Schools ESCOs Government and Schools ESCOsThe Illinois School Code (105 ILCS 5) and the Local Government Energy Conservation Act (50 ILCS 515) allow local schools districts and local government entities to enter into guaranteed energy services contracts for improvements to their facilities.
