From the Illinois Policy Institute…
Last week in Seattle, I had the pleasure of watching John Tillman accept the Roe Award at the State Policy Networks’s annual meeting. The Roe Award pays tribute to those in the state public policy movement whose achievements have greatly advanced the free market philosophy.
The activities and impact recognized by the Roe Award were truly a team effort. That team is made up not only of our top-notch staff but also the donors who underwrite our work and the liberty leaders who champion the changes that will lead to a better Illinois.
That team includes you. Thank you for helping the Institute’s work take flight by reading our research, forwarding innovative ideas to friends and family and demanding that elected leaders embrace policies built upon liberty and respect for the individual.
Together, we can keep changing hearts, minds and laws.

Illinois lost the most jobs in the nation in the month of July – and has lost jobs each month since the January tax hike. The Institute’s report on this was featured on the Drudge Report Tuesday night and instantly flooded our website with tens of thousands of visitors. click here.
