Event Description:


Presentation by Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider & Illinois Business Immigration Coalition


As a small business owner and entrepreneur, Tim Schneider has dedicated his life in public service to promoting fiscally conservative values of smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, and fighting corruption. At the township, county, and statewide levels, Tim remains a steadfast voice for reform and accountability.

Currently serving in his third term as a Cook County Board Commissioner, Tim has led the fight against increased taxes and spending – advocating fiscal responsibility and transparency in government. Tim led the fight to repeal Todd Stroger’s sales tax increase, sponsored legislation to combat pay-to-play and workers compensation fraud, and worked to cut millions in wasteful taxpayer spending.  Commissioner Schneider is a strong advocate for the business community, he has been out spoken against the mandates the business community have been burdened with.



The IBIC will discuss likely changes to policy under the Trump administration, and provide guidance and answer questions for employers regarding their own business immigration issues.
