Capitol Insider: Trucking, Taxation and the New Pritzker Administration

In our Capitol Insights segment, we speak with Don Schaefer, Executive Vice President of the Midwest Truckers Association, on the health of Illinois trucking, the disaster of past taxes on Illinois’ trucking industry, the need for more drivers and what this long-time observer of Illinois politics thinks of the launch of the Pritzker Administration.

Beginning his career in journalism in 1973, Mr Schaefer has held many positions in both journalism, in various positions in state government, and as an association executive. His industry knowledge combines with his history of past administrations and their approach to the issues of taxation, regulation, job creation, and economic growth.
