Pritzker, Black Caucus tout economic measures aimed at boosting Black farmers
Gov. JB Pritzker joined Lt. Gov. Julianna Stratton and members of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus Monday to promote an upcoming disparity study meant to reduce inequities between Black farmers and their white counterparts. The study is part of the economic access, equity and opportunity pillar in the Black Caucus’ recent legislative package Pritzker signed into law last week.
The new law, SB1792, calls for the state to collect data on the "economic, land ownership, education, and other related differences between African American farmers and white farmers.”
