JDC tax incentive bill passes Senate

By Nick Kovatch on November 8 at 1:01pm

A bill that would create tax incentives for developers looking at former state-run properties like the Jacksonville Developmental Center passed the Illinois Senate unanimously yesterday.

Jacksonville Mayor Andy Ezard joined several other mayors from across the state during a Senate Sub-Committee hearing earlier this week speaking in favor of the bill.

State Senator Sam McCann was a co-sponsor of the measure.

State Rep C. D. Davidsmeyer says the House will probably wait until spring to take up the legislation.
