SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Bills aimed at improving the economic standing of people of color have become law. Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Tuesday signed another portion of the ambitious agenda of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus. The Democrat stopped at Union Baptist Church, near downtown Springfield, for the signing ceremony with Senate Majority Leader Kimberly Lightford and other leading Black legislators. The latest legislation is the economic portion of the Black Caucus’ “four pillars” of equity and fairness that grew from the police-involved death of George Floyd last spring. The others are criminal justice and education, which Pritzker has signed, and health care.
