Illinois REALTORS® tracks thousands of bills each year that relate to real estate.

Many of them have a direct bearing on commercial real estate, and each session the association’s Senior Director of Local Advocacy & Global Programs Mike Scobey provides a recap of them.

The list of bills includes hot-button issues such as Rent Control and a Cook County Assessor’s bill which could have boosted property taxes, and it also includes some lesser-known bills such as one mandating Tax Increment Financing transparency on property tax bills and a bill affecting retainage rates in construction.

The session was a successful one for the state association, and a video, podcast and article recapping the rest of the action is here.
