As our elected officials and regulatory agencies consider major rules and legislation to alter the financial services marketplace, effective communication with legislative and regulatory policy makers is The League's top priority and main focus.
The League is headquartered in Springfield, Illinois and maintains a legislative consultant in Washington, D.C. This enables The League to work closely at both the state and federal levels with key legislators, regulators, and policy makers by drafting and amending bills and testifying regularly before legislative committees. To achieve our goals, The League also works with other industry coalitions and Washington D.C. representatives. As Congress and the general assembly consider legislation that is destined to alter the financial services landscape for years to come, communicating member concerns to policy makers is our top priority.

The League maintains a Political Education Committee (ILFIPEC) to help promote and protect the interest of its members by supporting candidates who will support and defend its members. To that end, both formal briefings and informal get-togethers between elected officials, supervisors and The League members help ensure that our members’ views on issues that affect the industry are both heard and understood by the legislative and regulatory establishment.
*ILFIPEC is a non-partisan political education committee established under state law. Its purpose is to promote good citizenship through the personal and financial participation of personnel and directors of member institutions.
ILFIPEC contributions help the League with its educational efforts and are distributed to campaign committees of legislators and candidates who support our business. ILFIPEC contributes only to candidates for state office. State chartered institutions as well as their service corporations and holding companies may make corporate contributions. Federally chartered institutions cannot make corporate contributions; however, their service corporations and holding companies may make corporate contributions. Individuals from state and federal institutions may make personal contributions.
*Payment to the Illinois League of Financial Institution's Political Education Committee are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
