The Illinois Manufacturers’ Association (IMA) has issued the following statement regarding the inauguration of the 102nd General Assembly:
“Congratulations to the many public servants who took their oaths of office today. While the pandemic undoubtedly presents numerous challenges, the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association and manufacturers across the state stand ready to work with lawmakers to help lead the way out of this crisis. This pandemic has taught us the importance of creating and nurturing a strong manufacturing sector in Illinois,” said Mark Denzler, president & CEO of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association.
“Manufacturers are not only developing life-saving vaccines and treatments, but also producing needed personal protective equipment, keeping store shelves stocked with important goods and nutritious foods and powering our homes and businesses. By working together, we can build on these incredible accomplishments, put more people back to work and make sure Illinois comes out of the pandemic stronger than ever.”
