The Illinois REALTORS® lobbying team raced from one House committee hearing to another during the week to monitor discussion of numerous bills that would affect REALTORS®, property owners and consumers. In today’s Illinois State Capitol Report, 13 bills were cited because they advanced out of committee or are still under consideration.

Topics include: recording fees, county storm water management, river edge redevelopment zones, property tax relief, non-home rule sales tax increase, streamlining local government, local government protection authority, battery powered smoke detectors, expansion of professional licensing, evictions and eminent domain.
