Illinois Governor Pritzker: Support Small Businesses, Award Social Equity Licenses in Illinois NOW
- Illinois Governor's Officer, Governor J.B. Pritzker,
- United States of America
Dear Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker and State Legislators,
The undersigned companies call on the continued support from Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker and the Illinois General Assembly to immediately award the social equity cannabis licenses that have been delayed.
In addition to thousands of people who applied for cannabis licenses, the state-caused delays have hurt many small and medium-sized businesses who invested in supporting this industry.
Companies ranging from accounting, lab testing, and staffing, to medical and technology providers, for example, heard those promises and invested in Illinois by hiring people, buying equipment, securing property, and opening local offices.
The cannabis licensing delays are stifling thousands of businesses in the state, creating significant and irreparable damage to Illinois’ already hurting economy.
We ask the Governor to act immediately in signing the bill and award the year-long overdue licenses for social equity licenses in Illinois.
We, the undersigned, call on the Illinois Governor's Office and the Illinois Legislature's continued support to award the social equity licenses immediately in support of those who applied, and the rest of the business community that invested in servicing the fast-growing industry in Illinois.
The Illinois Governor Pritzker: Support Small Businesses, Award Social Equity Licenses in Illinois NOW petition to Illinois Governor's Officer, Governor J.B. Pritzker, was written by TheCannabis Community and is in the category Business at GoPetition.
