Website would gather new business permits

Apr 20, 2015

The Illinois Senate this week may vote on a plan to create a "one stop shop" for people wanting to set up businesses in Illinois.  

The measure would require the state to set up a web site that provides details on the costs and links to the forms and information for setting up a business in Illinois.  Deerfield Democrat Julie Morrison says:

"This will serve everybody from the person who's starting a cottage business in their home to a really large business coming forward with a lot of employees."

The state already has a website that provides information for people who want to start up a business, however this legislation lays out specific information that the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity must include on the site. If approved, the state would have to upgrade by summer of next year.
