A Message from Governor Bruce Rauner
Illinois is currently plagued with an overly burdensome regulatory environment. We have regulations for the sake of regulations, and they’re hindering our economic growth. It's time to cut the red tape in Illinois.
On October 17, 2016, I issued
Executive Order 2016-13, which instructs all state agencies to undertake a comprehensive review of existing rules and regulations. The goal is to determine which ones are outdated, repetitive, confusing, unnecessary, or harmful to the economy. The Executive Order also establishes the Illinois Competitiveness Council to oversee this important review.
Public participation is vital to this process. We depend on your input to help determine which rules or policies keep our state from creating jobs and providing better service. Use our online portal to share your ideas for simplifying or reducing regulations. Let's work together to cut the red tape in Illinois.
