The Coalition for Jobs, Growth & Prosperity, is a 501(c)(4), tax-exempt, non-profit organization, committed to securing the economic future of the Midwest region by educating, informing, and activating the public, stakeholders and elected officials to develop, promote and implement a stable, pro-job, pro-growth and pro-investment climate in Illinois. In other words, we seek to encourage market-based policy solutions based on a pro-business, pro-jobs message. Our focus is straightforward: the economy.
Five of Illinois’ newly elected lawmakers in the U.S. House are individuals who have opposed pro-business interests in the past, raising concerns about potential effects on the jobs-growth agenda. As an organization dedicated to educating and promoting market-based policy solutions to improve the overall business climate and the economy in the Midwest, we are therefore committed to dramatically increasing our grassroots advocacy efforts in 2013 and 2014 in order to promote and protect job growth.
