QC Chamber Heads To Springfield



The Quad Cities chamber took a trip to Springfield to meet with Illinois lawmakers and talk about the economic opportunities and financial situation of the state.

"The unfunded pension system is nearing $80 billion to a $100 billion," Quad Cities Chamber Executive Vice President Paul Rumler said. "And we think that the time is now to solve that. So that's what we have been talking primarily with our lawmakers about."

He said the chamber is working on clearing the path for areas like the Q-C-A that have a lot of growth potential. 
The conversation with lawmakers continues on March, 20th.
