The employees of the
Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic
are taxpayers too. We look upon the state and
federally-allocated dollars that are distributed
by Illinois government and our agency as a
portfolio that is owned by all Illinoisans. And
as you track the ups and downs of your own
investment portfolio, you should also be able to
track how today's government resources are being
used to ensure growth and prosperity.
DCEO, we work hard to
make sure the funds administered by our agency
are spent wisely to spur on Illinois' economic
prosperity, that innovation is nurtured and that
the best business ideas make it to market, right
here in Illinois.
