Elizabeth Kregor on Illinois’ Business Regulations
The director of the University of Chicago Law School’s Institute for Justice Clinic on Entrepreneurship and a research fellow for the State and Local Policy Project at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University agree that Illinois’ business regulations are especially tough on the state’s lower-income residents and entrepreneurs.
They spoke to Illinois News Network ahead of a Thursday forum entitled “Why Illinois Regulatory Policy Matters.” The event, hosted by Gov. Bruce Rauner, features a public forum with several speakers focusing on how regulatory reform can boost the state’s economy.
“From my experience working with low-income entrepreneurs in Chicago every day, I have seen the way over-regulation can grind down small businesses,” Elizabeth Kregor, director of the University of Chicago Law School’s IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship, said.
