Illinois REALTORS® kick off 2017 Capitol Conference in Springfield

Illinois REALTORS® get ready for their annual lobby day in Springfield.

The buses are arriving and more than 750 Illinois REALTORS® will be in Springfield today for the annual Capitol Conference and “REALTOR® Lobby Day.” This year’s event is drawing a record crowd of REALTORS® from around the state.

REALTORS® are leading advocates for private property rights and the real estate industry and they are bringing that message to the halls of the state Capitol. They will lobby legislators on the legislative and regulatory issues that affect Illinois homeowners, commercial real estate and real estate professionals.

Some of the issues on the association’s 2017 legislative agenda include: opposition to a bill that would repeal a 20-year-old law that prohibits local governments from imposing rent control measures; support for a bill that would create a voluntary financing mechanism for commercial, industrial and multi-family building clean energy projects; and support for an initiative updating real estate license law to make education course offerings and testing more efficient.
