Legislative and Policy Statements

Legislative and policy statements

Federal and state governments have a key role to play in the implementation of ON TO 2050. Policymakers decide how to allocate billions of dollars annually across various programs, services, and projects. They also help define the overall policy environment that influences the decision-making process.

To guide the agency as it works with federal and state partners to implement ON TO 2050, CMAP describes policy positions through its federal and state advocacy agenda.

The Illinois Regional Planning Act Funding

Proposed legislation (SB1429 and HB4027) would appropriate $10 million in funding to CMAP to support the functions and programs prescribed in the Illinois Regional Planning Act, which established CMAP as the comprehensive planning agency for northeastern Illinois. This would strengthen our valuable policy and planning work on behalf of the region, and leverage the federal funds available through the historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and other federal legislation.
